OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma City police say a woman has been arrested in connection to the murder of a child.
Around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oklahoma City police were called to a disturbance in the 800 block of S.E. 50th St.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found 27-year-old Carina Romero in front of the home.
Investigators say she had blood on her and was holding a 2-year-old child. Romero told officers that someone had killed a child inside the home.
At the point, Romero took the 2-year-old into the home, closed the door, and refused to allow officers to come inside the house.
Due to the circumstances, officers forced entry into the home and got the 2-year-old out safely.
Sadly, police found a deceased child in the home.
Romero was taken into custody on a complaint of murder of a child.
Officers say the investigation is in its early stages, so they are still trying to determine exactly what led up to the crime.
