A criminal complaint alleges that Toledo stabbed Panana with a box-cutter razor and a kitchen knife before repeatedly striking him with a shovel, stabbing his face and then slashing his throat and abdomen.
Toledo is also accused of pulling out handfuls of Panana's entrails and throwing them on Panana's body and wrapping some of them around the victim's neck.
Toledo was taken into federal custody.
