Victim in hospital in stable condition
Attempted homicide suspect Angel Casarez Romero turned himself into the Lincoln Police Department on Dec. 22, according to police. Romero was wanted in connection with the Sunday morning stabbing of his wife, according to Lincoln Police Lt. David Ibarra. At 1 a.m. on Sunday morning, Lincoln Police were dispatched to 455 Joiner Parkway to a call that a female had been stabbed multiple times, according to Lincoln Police Sgt. Terry Kennedy. Arriving at the scene, officers found an adult female inside her apartment with several life-threatening stab wounds, Kennedy said. The woman was transported to Sutter Roseville Hospital, according to Kennedy. Lincoln Police Chief Paul Shelgren said Tuesday that the victim has been released from the hospital and “is continuing to recuperate.” According to Ibarra, Romero walked into the Lincoln Police Department at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 22 and turned himself in "without incident." Police took Romero into custody and later booked him into the Placer County Jail on an attempted homicide charge, Ibarra said. Since the investigation is still ongoing, Ibarra said the Lincoln Police Department is unable to provide any further details at this time.
