On July 18, 2019 around 8:00 p.m., 33-year-old Greg Hernandez Romero was arrested and booked on charges including Second-Degree Murder after taking the life of his father.

Hernandez is being held without bond.

Hernandez Romero lived at home with his father, 63-year-old father David Romero and his 61-year-old mother.

According to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, when the couple returned home on July 18, they noticed their son had consumed a large amount of beer. The parents argued with him over their drinking concern. He threw his phone at them and then went into the kitchen and grabbed two large knives. When he tried to stab his mother, his father intervened and attempted to restrain him while he was still in the kitchen.

The son began attacking his dad. As the struggle moved from the kitchen into the living room, the son was able to stab his dad in the chest. The father collapsed to the floor.

The son then grabbed another knife and threatened to slit his own throat. At this point the mother ran outside and flagged down an off-duty Yavapai County Sheriffs deputy, who confronted the son. The deputy physically restrained him until other deputies arrived. At the same time the deputy was restraining the son, he provided CPR instruction to the mother as she attended her husband.

  3. Al-Anon is for family and friends of alcoholics. Those meetings saved my life and got me out of the way of my sons life. The hardest thing I’ve ever done is to say “No you can’t come home”. I knew he’d die without my help – trouble was he was dying WITH my misguided help. I let go & let God. Addicts have to find their own way. Some get sober, some go crazy & some die. It’s a deadly disease for ALL members of the family

    • I am in recovery not because anyone forced me but because I made a decision. It took me awhile but I am glad I made it. Anyone can change and make the best of life but it is up to them.
