Hardin was visiting the Dos Rios government-subsidized housing project, just north of downtown Sacramento, when his assailants mistook him for a person who had information about an earlier robbery of Davis. After the stabbing, Hardin staggered to a nearby apartment, where his pleas for help were ignored. He later was dragged away by residents to a lawn area where he died.
Davis, now 44 years old, is at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville.
Currie, 43, is at Mule Creek State Prison in Ione.
