Madison - On Thursday, Madison police reported the arrest of Erik Rosales, 16, of Milwaukee who was sought in connection with the stabbing death of Elideo Jimenez, 34. Jimenez was fatally stabbed on April 11, at the 2300 block of S. 19th St. near W. Lincoln Ave.
The criminal complaint states, that both Rosales and Juan Ramos, 18, after hours of drinking and getting drunk decided to go to Ramos mother's residence at S. 19th St. around 5:30 a.m. and stabbed Jimenez multiple times causing his death. Ramos also punched and happened to stab his mother, Amelia Alvarez, 34, in the incident who was sleeping next to Jimenez in bed.
Alvarez was stabbed multiple times by her son and Jimenez was stabbed by Rosales more than 20 times, including stabs by Ramos.
Alvarez told police she had acted like she was dead, so that Ramos wouldn't continue to stab her. But, she was able to witness Rosales stabbing Jimenez multiple times, according to the criminal complaint.
Ramos stayed at the residence until police arrived and arrested him. Rosales fled the scene and on Monday he was arrested by Madison police with the help of the Iowa County Sheriff's Department.
Apparently, the suspects targeted Jimenez for trying to molest Ramos' 17-year-old sister. The 17-year-old girl told Ramos, her brother that Jimenez had gone into her bed one night and had tried to sexually molest her about several weeks before Jimenez was killed.
Alvarez confronted Jimenez and then beat him outside in the back yard, according Ramos' sister. Jimenez left the residence for several days and later returned. Alvarez allowed Jjimenez back into the residence, despite Jimenez' prior attempt to molest her daughter.
Rosales and Ramos were charged each with first-degree intentional homicide and attempted first-degree homicide. If convicted on all charges, both Rosales and Ramos are facing life in prison without parole.
