STANSBURY PARK, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – Two young men charged in connection with the stabbing death of a 17-year-old Stansbury Park teen appear in court Monday. Monday night the 911 call from that day at Stansbury Park Elementary School were released.

 

 Investigators say it all started on twitter. Two teens fighting over a girl, but a 17-year-old from Jesse Horowitz was just there to watch. Somehow got involved and ended up getting stabbed to death.

 

Pleading with the 911 operator for help, friends try desperately to help the 17-year-old.

 

“Jesse, don’t go. No!” says the caller.

 

Witnesses say Horowitz was just a bystander. He was at the school where a fight over a girl was scheduled to take place.

  

Prosecutors say Roy Coffee was there to fight another teen. They posted the time and the place on twitter, but when that fight ended another one started. Witnesses say that's when Coffey's cousin, 20-year-old Larry Beach stepped in and started fighting with Horowitz.

         

You can hear the caller on the 911 tape name Coffee.

 

"Do you know who they were?” asked the operator. “No,” said the caller. “He was friends with Roy Coffee."

 

Beach allegedly stabbed Horowitz 9 different times, including once in the neck.

 

“Hold it,” pleads the caller. “Hold the shirt directly on the neck, directly on the neck."

 

Despite their efforts to stop the bleeding Horowitz died on the scene.

 

"No, he's not breathing, he’s not breathing,” cried the caller. “His eyes are just wide open."

 

The suspects appeared in court Monday. Roy Coffee has been charged with obstruction of justice. Larry Beach, who is from San Antonio, is now facing first degree murder charges.
