Man Arrested For Second-Degree Murder In Connection With The Death Of His Father

A man has been arrested in connection with the death of his father Thursday night in Congress. Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies were flagged down outside a house after a woman ran outside after her son stabbed his father at around 8 p.m. Authorities say 33-year-old Greg Romero was home alone, drinking, when his parents came home and confronted him about his consumption. After throwing his phone, Greg went into the kitchen and grabbed two large knives and tried to stab his 61-year-old mother. His 63-year-old father attempted to restrain Greg while still in the kitchen. The struggle went into the living room, which is when Greg stabbed his father in the chest. Greg grabbed another knife and threatened to cut his own throat. A deputy entered the home and physically restrained Romero until other deputies arrived. Life-saving methods were used on Greg’s father but he was pronounced dead at the scene. Romero has been booked on charges of second degree murder, aggravated assault and aggravated assault against a police officer. He is being held without bond in the Camp Verde Detention Center.
