Hereford Couple Attacked, Wife Killed

Posted:

A Hereford couple was attacked Sunday at their home, leaving the woman dead and her husband injured.

When police arrived at the home, they found Maria and Roberto Martinez lying in bed with stab wounds. Maria was taken to the hospital where she later died and Roberto remains hospitalized in critical condition.

There were three children in the house at the time but none of them were hurt. The children told police their mother was asleep in the bedroom when Roberto went in. One of the children went into the room after hearing his mom call for help. He told police he found the two in bed and called 911.

Police say so far no arrests have been made. Hereford is about 100 miles northeast of Lubbock.
