Montana News Disclaimer: One of the most sacred principles in the American criminal and civil justice system, holding that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty.
In other words, the prosecution or Plaintiff's must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, each essential element of the crime or civil allegations charged or leveled. Until then the defendant or respondent is considered innocent of the charges or civil allegations

Billings man Ayrton L. Troches was arrested and charged with Assault with a weapon and aggravated Assault. On April 19, 2019, Billings Police Officers responded to the Billings Clinic Hospital for what was described by dispatch as a possible stabbing victim.
Billings police Officer Anderson responded to the call and entered into the Trauma room and spoke to the stabbing victim D.K. who was receiving treatment for stab wounds to the neck and the chest area.
The victim (D.K.) stated to Officer Anderson that it was his roommate Ayrton L. Troches who stabbed him.
Multiple Officers responded to the address of 1715 7th Avenue North and surrounded the home. Troches came to the door, and he was immediately handcuffed and led to one of the Billings police patrol cars for questioning.
Inside of the home, three other individuals were located and interrogated. They are as follows: S. Morgan, J. Morgan and J. Dennis All three were not arrested and just gave statements to the Officers as none of them had any involvement in the stabbing incident.
S. Morgan was woken up by the stabbing victim D.K as he had been stabbed right below the collar bone and needed a ride to the hospital.
In summary, the victim had been a roommate with Troches for some time and neither one of them like each other nor were they getting along with one another. According to the victim he was being accused of sleeping with Troche's girlfriend. Troches charged D.K. and started to throw punches. As the fight ensued, Troches cut the neck and stabbed his roommate. Troches was using throwing knives in the assault on the victim D.K.
