TORRANCE – A Long Beach man was ordered today to stand trial on a murder charge stemming from the stabbing death of his former girlfriend’s husband in Torrance nearly 25 years ago.
Torrance Superior Court Judge Eric C. Taylor found sufficient evidence to require Janos Kulcsar, 59, to proceed to trial for the Dec. 9, 1985, slaying of Archie McFarland, according to Deputy District Attorney John Lewin.
The 58-year-old office equipment technician was repeatedly stabbed in the driveway of his home on 184th Street.
Kulcsar had been romantically involved with the victim’s wife, who had returned to her spouse, and who later resumed her relationship with Kulcsar after her husband’s slaying, according to testimony.
Kulcsar was arrested April 1 by Torrance police. He remains jailed in lieu of $1 million bail and is due back in court for arraignment on Sept. 27.
