Jonathan Schuler, a West Palm Beach resident and day laborer at a Deerfield Beach construction site, was arrested on March 8 for allegedly attacking and killing his co-worker Arcenio Alvarez of Lake Worth. Schuler, 32, faces a premeditated murder charge. He was booked into a Broward jail. News sources did not name an attorney for him.
According to news sources, the attack occurred on Wednesday morning at a construction site at 700 W. Hillsboro Boulevard in Deerfield Beach.
