Accused killer gets April hearing
February 01, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A Pacifica man accused of stabbing and beating his friend with a hammer more than 50 times at his father's home last fall will learn in April if he'll stand trial on murder and two weapons charges.

Marc Anthony Furlan, 24, has pleaded not guilty to all charges. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on the evidence April 25 in the Oct. 17 death of  24-year-old Keith Coffey.

Furlan and Coffey were acquaintances and reportedly argued before Coffey's Oct. 17 death. Prosecutors say Furlan killed Coffey in the Dell Road house and dragged the body outside before trying to clean the scene. Two tenants fled the scene and contacted police who found Coffey in front of the home around 5:15 a.m.

Furlan was reportedly trying to dispose of the body when police arrived and had left a wide swath of blood from the house to outside.

Furlan's father was not home at the time of the incident.

Furlan remains in custody without bail.
