In a news conference, Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub announced that Joshua Gamble, 17, and Anthony Gamble, 19, will face charges of criminal homicide, criminal conspiracy and related charges after a stabbing death of a man found along a road.

Weintraub revealed Joshua’s identity because he is being charged as an adult.

On June 17, a Pennsylvania State Police trooper spotted what appeared to be a disabled Subaru with New Jersey plates on the 500 block of East Pumping Station Road shortly after midnight.

An Audi with Florida plates was parked 100 feet away from the Subaru.

Authorities say he had blood on his shoes and was wearing a plastic-coated work glove. In addition, he carried a Subaru key fob, which was stained with what appeared to be blood, Weintraub said during the press conference.

He allegedly also had blood on his shoes and shirt. Two work gloves were also found inside the pocket of his pants. That man was identified as Anthony Gamble.

Police found a substantial amount of blood in the Audi and requested backup. Weintraub said they also discovered a large knife on the passenger floor of the car, which had blood on its blade and its wooden handle.

Authorities found a cell phone and sanitizing wipes on the roof of the Audi, and another cell phone inside the car.

Joshua allegedly bought the wipes and two sets of coated work gloves from a nearby 7-Eleven, about 20 minutes before state police arrived, authorities said during the press conference.

An initial investigation showed Rosero appeared to have stab wounds in his head, neck, upper chest and arm. An autopsy will be conducted on June 18.

Joshua and Anthony Gamble were arraigned June 17 and are being held in the Bucks County Correctional Facility without bail.
