A victim of a multiple stabbing involving three brothers has died. According to the East Haven Police Department (EHPD), Michael Lieto, 21, died as a result of injuries received in the stabbing on Tuesday (Nov. 13) in the area of 20 Maplevale Road.

Aaron Powell, 21, and a 17-year-old juvenile male, were arrested shortly after the incident, which was reported via several 911 calls to the EHPD around 2:15 p.m.

According to the EHPD, Michael Lieto suffered “at least one stab wound.” Robert Lieto, 26, also sustained injuries and was later treated and released from Yale-New Haven Hospital. Dion Lieto, 23, was assaulted with “an unknown blunt object." Dion Lieto helped police with their investigation. The Lietos previously lived in East Haven, but currently reside in Wallingford, police said.

The police investigation revealed that the dispute centered on a stolen item, but police did not reveal what that item was. The Connecticut State Police Major Crimes Squad is working on the investigation along with the EHPD.

Powell was being held on a $1 million bond and was set to appear in court today. He was charged with first degree manslaughter, first degree assault, first degree reckless endangerment, carrying a dangerous weapon, and second degree breach of peace.
