An illegal immigrant fled to Mexico after he allegedly murdered his pregnant wife and a roommate in Phoenix, say police. He then reportedly kidnapped his two young sons, triggering an Arizona Amber Alert early Saturday.
Dimas Coronado, 47, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was named in an arrest warrant after investigators from the Phoenix Police Department developed probable cause for three counts of homicide. Coronado’s estranged wife, Oralia Nunez Gonzalez, 24, and her roommate, Omar Gonzalez, 34, (no relation), were discovered wounded inside a trailer home by a relative of Nunez after arriving home from work. When police responded, they discovered Gonzalez was already deceased and Nunez, who was approximately eight months pregnant, was transported to a local hospital where she succumbed to her gunshot wounds. The warrant for the three counts of homicide includes one for the death of the unborn child.
During the investigation, it was determined that 8-year-old Victor Coronado-Nunez and 5-year-old Jonathan Coronado-Nunez were reportedly kidnapped by their father after the alleged slayings—triggering an Amber Alert for the boys. Police confirmed on Sunday that Coronado and Nunez were married but separated for two months. Officers previously responded multiple times to Nunez’s home for domestic violence calls, according to Phoenix Police Department spokesman, Sgt Armando Carbajal.
