The man accused of stabbing another man to death at a Chinese medicine clinic on Centre Street appeared in a Calgary court on Monday.

Jin Qing Huang, 42, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Tiejun Huang, 51, a doctor who owned the Perpetual Wellness clinic in the Central Landmark building.

Police say the accused and victim share the same last name but are not related.

Investigators say a man showed up at the clinic with a knife, convinced that his wife and the victim were in a relationship, at about 2:35 p.m. on June 16.

They say he confronted Tiejun Huang and that’s when the stabbing took place.

When police arrived, they found one man dead and two people suffering from minor injuries.

The suspect was treated at the scene and a woman was taken to hospital where she was treated and released.

Police say the suspect is known to them and that officers attended the home he shared with his wife for a previous domestic incident, but would not elaborate on details.

Jin Qing Huang faced the judge on Monday wearing a blue prison jumpsuit and remained silent when asked if he understood the charges against him. He was assisted by a Cantonese translator.

Huang remains in custody and is being given time to find a lawyer. He will be back in court on Friday.
