A Muscatine man charged with first-degree murder in the weekend stabbing death of a Wilton teen posted about the incident on social media afterward, with dried blood on his body and brandishing the knife he used, according to the Quad City Times.

Milton Jermaine Cole Serrano Jr., 21, of Muscatine, is jailed in Cedar County on a $1 million cash only bond in the killing of 19-year-old Chantz Stevens, 19.

According to court documents obtained by the Quad City Times, Serrano keyed a car at a party in rural Cedar County early Sunday. Party goers asked him to leave and a physical altercation ensued. The fight was broken up but “Serrano then made reference to a knife in his pocket and threatened to stab other individuals at the scene,” the newspaper reported.

At some point Serrano and Stevens got into a physical altercation and Stevens was stabbed twice in the abdomen, the report said. The victim died at the scene.
