TWO RIVERS - Police say the jailed suspect in Sunday's alleged murder in Two Rivers is the stepfather of the victim.

There are still unanswered questions. Police won't comment on the motive behind the stabbing, and the Manitowoc County District Attorney hasn't filed charges.

Officials say 34-year-old Koyoko Perry was stabbed in the chest around 3 a.m. Sunday and tried to drive away from the scene. He then crashed into two vehicles in a driveway and later died at a hospital.

Fifty-four-year-old Jesse Moreno, Jr. is being held on a $250,000 cash bond in connection with the alleged murder. He was in court Monday afternoon for a short hearing.

FOX 11 typically doesn't release a suspect's name until charges are officially filed, but police have said the crime wasn't random and the public isn't in any danger.

Two Rivers Police Chief Joseph Collins still won't say what led up to the stabbing.

"At this point, we're not going to release that information," said Collins. "That's integral to the investigation."

Collins said that Moreno and Perry did not live together.

Moreno is scheduled to be back in court next Monday afternoon.

More information could be released later this week. FOX 11 will keep following this story as more details become available.
