RED BANK – Two borough men were sentenced to prison terms on Tuesday for their roles in the stabbing death of a borough man on the west side in 2011.

Jose Olivares-Palma, 26, was sentenced to 14 years in Superior Court in Freehold for stabbing to death Larry Yarborough, 39, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.

Olivares-Palma had pleaded guilty on May 5 to charges of first degree aggravated manslaughter and second degree aggravated assault.

Along with Olivare-Palma, co-defendant Gennaro Guerrero-Montes, 22, was sentenced to six years for his May 5 guilty plea of second degree aggravated assault.

Olivares-Palma’s sentence is subject to the state’s No Early Release Act, requiring him to serve a minimum of 85 percent of his sentence – 11 years, 10 months and 28 days – before being considered for parole, according to the prosecutor’s office.

Yarborough’s death occurred on Aug. 7, 2011, on Bank Street. Police responded to a call of an altercation occurring at a Bank Street residence, where officers discover Yarborough suffering from multiple stab wounds, and subsequently succumbed to his injuries; and a second victim, Manuel Rosas-Oceloti who had been stabbed once, authorities said. Rosas-Oceloti recovered from his injuries.

A joint investigation conducted by the prosecutor’s office and Red Bank Police determined that the victims and their friends had become embroiled in a dispute with the defendants and their friends, which erupted into violence.

As the fight broke out, Olivares-Palma and Guerrero-Montes got knives and the stabbed the victims before fleeing the scene, authorities said.
