Police in Oklahoma City were in for quite a shock when they encountered Carina Romero who was holding a two year old child and both were covered in blood. Carina Romero allegedly told the officers that someone had killed a child inside of her home and then proceeded to walk away. Carina Romero would lock her door and refuse to answer to the police who would end up blocking off the street when they negotiated with her. When that did not work police would break down the door and inside of the home find the body of an eleven year old boy who had appeared to be stabbed to death. According to her neighbors screams could be heard coming from the home minutes before police arrived and Carina Romero walked outside. Carina Romero was arrested and charged with the murder of the 11 year old boy.

Police said a boy was stabbed to death in SE OKC on Sunday. Investigators believe a family member may be responsible.
“It’s sad,” said Tyler Risenhoover, a neighbor. “For the last 20 years, the block hasn’t been like this down here, you don’t see much of this.”
Police first got the call around 4:45 Sunday afternoon. Neighbors say they blocked off the street, trying to get someone to come out of one of the homes. One man who lives just across the street says he watched officers bust down the front door to get inside and what they found was the boy.
“It changes everything because it’s kids,” said Risenhoover. “You got to take care of them, and you’re supposed to protect them and lead them the right way and stuff.”
Investigators on scene said they arrested one person who could be related to the victim. Other children were inside the home as well, but fortunately they were not injured.
Police are now trying to piece together what led up to the stabbing. The neighbors I spoke with say they didn’t know the victim or his family, but never suspected anything out of the ordinary.
“Typically, you don’t see a lot of this,” said Risenhoover. “Down here, we don’t really see it so it’s kind of nerve wracking.”
A woman, identified as Carina Romero, is now in the Oklahoma County Jail on a first-degree murder complaint in connection to the stabbing.
She was identified as the person found in the home with the children, and the boy found stabbed to death, when police arrived to the scene.
