OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City mother is out of the hospital and in jail for the murder of her 8-month-old baby boy.

Earlier this month, police say 21-year-old Raven Veloz stabbed Sergio Garcia, their 8-month-old son Ezekiel Veloz, and her 4-year-old daughter Sophia.  

Authorities say she then stabbed herself several times.

Veloz, Garcia and Sophia were all rushed to the hospital.

Tragically, 8-month-old Ezekiel didn’t make it.

Court records reveal disturbing details in the horrific stabbing.

An affidavit shows some of the initial police interview with the boyfriend at the hospital.

He told officers he and Raven Veloz were separated, but she’d asked him to come over to help her because she was being evicted from her apartment, and he said he woke up to her stabbing him with a knife.

The 8-month-old baby boy was already unresponsive when police got there.

Court records show the first officers on the scene said “Raven Veloz was holding a knife in her hand, and had another knife lying on the floor next to her.”

Fire crews had to pry open the front door.

Inside, Veloz, daughter Sophia, and son Ezekiel all had multiple stab wounds to their chests.

Ezekiel died at the apartment.

A family member told NewsChannel 4 that Ezekiel was stabbed more than a dozen times.

Raven Veloz and Sergio Garcia lost a daughter in January, they say, from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

But in an autopsy report, that wasn’t the case.

The ME ruled the little girl died from complications from a virus.

Veloz had been in the hospital for self-inflicted stab wounds since the horrific stabbing.

On July 19, she was released from the hospital and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.

She is facing one count of first-degree murder and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

According to Garcia’s Facebook page, he and Sophia have also both been released from the hospital.
