Eduardo Velasquez was stabbed in the upper chest at his home Saturday night, Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said. Velasquez died shortly after at a hospital.

Metts said Jamie Cruz Palma, 28, and Jerado Palma, 24, both of West Columbia, S.C., were arrested near the scene and charged with murder.
