According to police, Romero brought the 2-year-old child into the home and closed the door and didn't let officers inside. Officers reportedly made a forced entry into the home where they found a child who appeared to have been fatally stabbed multiple times. Police say the 2-year-old child was recovered.
The Oklahoma City Sentinel reports witnesses heard screaming from Romero's residence before police arrived. Romero reportedly walked up and down the street with her child covered in blood and shouted outside for several minutes.
Romero allegedly blamed her husband for her child's death. According to the Oklahoma City Sentinel, enough evidence was gathered to indicate otherwise, including several cuts on Romero's hands matching the knife used to stab her child.
According to police, Romero was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center "on a complaint of murder of a child."
Police say the victim's name will be released once the identity is confirmed. Romero's motive is unknown.
