Murder charge in stabbing outside Seattle club

SEATTLE -- Police say a 22-year-old man charged with second-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of a man outside a Seattle nightclub was identified through his Facebook account.
Prosecutors say 21-year-old Faustino Flores Cervantes was killed on Oct. 26 by a man witnesses described as having a "distinctive hair style" -- long on the top and back, shaved on the sides.
Hever Zuniga-Guzman was charged Thursday in King County Superior Court.
The violence started with a fight outside a Belltown nightclub. Charging documents say that fight ended but the victim was stabbed after the defendant accosted him as Flores Cervantes attempted to drive away.
One witness who saw the fight told police she didn't know the attacker's name but they had mutual acquaintances. Court documents say she was able to find the man's name by looking through her friends' Facebook accounts.
The Renton man is held on $1 million bail.
