This is tragic. A mother has been accused of stabbing her two young children, one of whom has already been pronounced dead. Raven Veloz was arrested on July 11 in Oklahoma City for this heinous crime. Read on for the full details.
Raven Veloz, 21, was arrested on July 11 for allegedly stabbing her two children, ages 4 and eight-months old, as well as an unidentified 28-year-old man and herself. The eight-month-old, Ezekiel Roman, was pronounced dead due to stab wounds at the scene of the crime. HollywoodLife.com has the full story here.
Police have charged Raven with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Daily Mail. Police reported that they were called to The Cambridge Landing Apartments at 8800 Drexel Ave. in southern Oklahoma City early on July 11 and found four people with knife wounds, including Raven, her two children and an unidentified 28-year-old man. Ezekiel was pronounced dead on the scene. What a devastating crime.
Police are reporting that Raven stabbed herself, as well as her children. Her four-year-old daughter, Sophia, is said to be in critical condition in the hospital, while Raven and the unidentified man are said to be in stable condition. We cannot believe that another crime like this has been committed and that the life of another innocent child has been taken.
This tragic event comes just weeks after Madison, 17, and Taylor Sheats, 22 lost their lives way too soon at the hands of their own mother, Christy Sheats, 42, who shot them dead on June 24. So many are still confused as to how parents can commit acts like this, how a mother could kill her own children. Christy gave her reason as wanting to teach her husband a “lesson.” She was going to shoot him as well, but left him alive to “make him suffer.“
According to Raven’s Facebook page, she also had a two-year-old daughter, Audree Nicole Garcia, who died of SIDS back in January, and she is married to a man named Sergio Garcia. We can only hope that her daughter Sophia pulls through.
