Romero of Pueblo. Romero was found dead in her home Monday afternoon with a stab wound to her neck. A cord also was wrapped around her neck. Pueblo Police Sgt. James Barnes said Ashfield would be charged in the Romero killing along with other charges, including escaping and motor vehicle theft. He was being held in a Los Angeles County jail pending extradition back to Colorado. "It's the DA's decision whether to bring him back here," Barnes said. "But I'm sure he will." When Ashfield escaped from the hospital he had been left unattended in a police car as Chaffee County Sheriff's Deputy Chester Price went to get a second inmate. Ashfield, who was handcuffed, was somehow able to free a secured gun left in the patrol car and confronted Price when he returned. He forced the deputy to give him keys to a marked, four-wheel drive sheriff's vehicle, and then fled. He abandoned the sheriff's vehicle after it crashed into a fence. Ashfield was admitted to the state mental institution after he cut his arm in a suicide attempt at the Chaffee County Jail. He was arrested Jan. 7 on suspicion of robbing and beating a clerk with a fireplace poker at a Salida motel. Darryl Sanders, 25, of Los Angeles, was in Romero's car when Ashfield was arrested. Barnes said Sanders also was arrested but was unable to say if charges were going to be filed against him. Colorado Springs Gazette - February 20, 1991 - Suspect in Pueblo Slaying Linked to Robbery, Assault at Motel - A suspect in the slaying of a Pueblo woman also is accused of robbing a Salida motel and beating up the manager just 2 ½ hours after being released from prison in January, authorities said Tuesday. Woody Ashfield, 24, is in custody in Los Angeles, and police suspect him of strangling Cora Marie Romero, 61, with a telephone cord and stabbing her in the throat on Feb. 11. Ashfield escaped from a sheriff's deputy on Feb. 8 in Pueblo while in custody for the Salida robbery. He was arrested Friday in Los Angeles while driving Romero's car. Before the escape and the Romero slaying, Ashfield was paroled Jan. 7 after serving six months at Buena Vista Correctional Facility for robbery. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph – March 24, 1993 – Suspect in Pueblo Slaying to be Tried in Salida Beating – Man Bound Over After Hearing – A man accused of a killing in Pueblo has been ordered to stand trial in Salida on eight felony charges connected with the beating of a motel clerk. Woodie Ashfield, 26, will be tried Aug. 9 on two counts each of first-degree assault, first-degree burglary and theft; and one count each of second-degree kidnapping and aggravated robbery. Judge Kenneth Plotz bound Ashfield over for trial after a preliminary hearing Friday. Ashfield was paroled from Buena Vista Correctional Facility on Jan. 7, 1991, after serving a six-month sentence for criminal impersonation and robbery. That day, he reportedly traveled by bus to Salida, where he allegedly assaulted and tied up a 22-year-old woman at Red Wood Lodge and stole more than $500. After the incident, Ashfield was taken to the Colorado Mental Health Institute for evaluation. He reportedly escaped from a Chaffee County Sheriff's officer Feb. 8, 1991. A few days later, Ashfield allegedly entered the Pueblo home of Cora Romero and stabbed and strangled the woman while she was baby-sitting her 3-year-old grandson. Ashfield was arrested Feb. 19, 1991, in Los Angeles, where he was seen driving Romero's car, police said.

Romero, Daniel
Daniel Romero – Walsenburg World – March 5, 1903 - Word reached Walsenburg Tuesday morning that a man had been killed in the mine at Midway. Deputy District Attorney Charles Hayden, Under Sheriff John MacQuarrie, and Acting Coroner (unreadable) viewed the scene of the accident (unreadable) paneled a jury and investigated the matter. The jury brought in a verdict “that deceased came to his death by fall of rock” and further stated that it was an unavoidable accident. The deceased was a Mexican by the name of Daniel Romero. He had been told to put up a prop and was clearing up the coal preparatory to doing so when the rock fell on him. He had fired a shot first, after the pit boss visited him, before he started to put up the prop. The rock was wedge-shaped, smooth on the bottom and running up to a point in the roof. This became loosened by the action of water. This kind of rock, the miners say, is difficult to prop because of the irregular shape hidden beneath the surface, making it impossible to determine the center of gravity of the mass. Undertaker Cox went after the body yesterday and funeral services were conducted at the Catholic Church here. Romero was 22 years old and his only relative is brother in Toltec, Colo.

With your faith and belief in our Lord Jesus Christ, you made this decision. I will always cherish the memories of our early years, when we were younger, healthier and happy most of the time. These were years when we didn't worry or care very much. I remember when you were young, beautiful and you never seemed to tire. You were always on the run, having fun raising our children. You were a perfect loving mother and wife. You dedicated your life to this end. All of our children have great respect for the way you conducted your life and the high moral and ethical standards you have lived by. It is a very special and unique trait that is found in a few special people. Our marriage was not perfect, but because of you it lasted 49 years and 9 months.

Romero, Deonicio
Deonicio Romero – Colorado Public Defender – June 26, 1896 – William Holt, Albert Noble, and Deonicio Romero, Trinidad (Las Animas County). WW. Hanging/Broken necks. These three codefendants were convicted of the felony murder of a Trinidad police officer, John Solomon. In July 1895, Romero, age twenty-one, and Noble, age thirty-four, became acquainted with Leonardo Martinez and Pedro Baca, who were being held in the Las Animas County Jail pending trial for murder. Romero was serving a jail sentence for assault, having served several previous sentences for petty offenses. Noble had been arrested for a robbery in New Mexico, having previously served a seven-year sentence for robbing a post office. Upon release from jail, Romero, Noble, and a third man, William Holt, age twenty-one, conspired to rob the Horse Shoe Gambling Club in Trinidad to secure funds for Martinez and Baca's defense. Several others, including Martinez's mother, also assisted with the scheme. Officer John Solomon discovered and foiled the robbery. Solomon first struggled with Holt before Noble shot him in the back. Holt was the first person arrested; a gun left at the scene, which he purchased from a local pawnbroker a few days previously, tied him to the crime. Upon interrogation by the authorities, Holt confessed, and Romero quickly confirmed his story. Noble was tried first, followed by a joint trial for Holt and Romero. The convictions were affirmed on appeal. The three were executed in the first triple execution in Colorado's history. The men were executed in alphabetical order, in private, with all details prior to the executions kept secret. Originally the men were supposed to be hanged in the order of their culpability—Noble, Romero, and then Holt—but Holt was distressed that he “was called first.” Notably, Holt had to be carried to the death chamber.

Romero, Fidel
Fidel Romero – World Independent – February 4, 1941 – Man is Instantly Killed by Train – Fidel Romero Falls Beneath Passenger Train Near Cameron – Fidel Romero, about 30, a resident of Rouse and Ravenwood for a number of years, was instantly killed shortly after 1 o'clock this morning when he jumped or fell under the wheels of the southbound C. and S. passenger train about one-half mile south of Cameron. His body was badly mangled by the train. It was the regular No. 7 passenger. Romero was accompanied by his brother, William, who said this morning they had caught the train in the Walsenburg yards with the intention of riding to Cameron and then walking to Ravenwood, a short distance south of that camp. When they approached the spot where they were to jump off, William negotiated the leap and managed to fall clear of the train. Fidel, on the other hand, was caught in some manner and his body was thrown under the wheels. According to County Coroner Dan Unfug, who conducted an investigation after the accident occurred, and Sheriff Claud Swift and Undersheriff Carl Swift, the body was badly crushed and cut. It was dragged some 65 miles under the train before it was thrown clear. The train crew was not aware that the accident had happened and proceeded on to Mayne where the train was halted to repair a broken steam-line. It is thought that the force of the body's impact uncoupled the hose, according to Fred Pfalmer, special C. & S. agent, who was in Walsenburg this morning, the engine was inspected in Trinidad early this morning, and blood was found on the tender. Later, at Texline, the baggage car was examined, and it was reported a piece of flesh was found on the front end of the car, near the coupling. An inquest has been called to examine the death at 7 o'clock Tuesday evening, according to Coroner Unfug. John Shepeard of Walsenburg, who was returning from Rugby, came upon the scene shortly after the tragedy happened. William Romero and he then went to the home of Henry Clark at Cameron and notified the coroner and sheriff. Members of the train and inspection crew of the C. & S. will arrive tomorrow from Trinidad to testify at the inquest. Romero is survived by his wife, Ramona, and by two small children; two brothers, William and Fred, and by his mother, a resident of Walsenburg. Funeral arrangements are pending the outcome of the inquiry.

Romero, John Leroy
John Leroy Romero – World Independent – January 2, 1957 - New Year Ends in Tragedy - Youth Prone on Highway Killed by Passing Car - A coroner's inquest into the New Year's traffic death of John Leroy Romero, 17-year old Walsenburg youth, has been scheduled for 7 o'clock tonight in the district courtroom here. Young Romero, listed as Colorado's second traffic fatality of 1957, died at 7:30 last night of injuries suffered when he was struck by a car at 1:10 New Years' morning. The accident happened near the crest of the hill two-tenths of a mile south of Walsenburg, on Highway 85-87. Driver of the car which struck the youth was identified by investigating officers as David Otha Bounds, 35, of Roswell, N. Mex. A witness' account and other information gathered by officers, including testimony of the victim himself, added much to the details concerning the accident. The witness, Virgil Pineda, of this city , told officers of seeing young Romero crawling on the road before he was hit, he said he had to swerve his car around Romero to avoid hitting him as he was traveling south on the highway. After passing Romero, Pineda turned around at the cemetery access road, came back and parked on the shoulder of the road to investigate. He said Romero was lying on his back in the south lane of traffic when he returned. He said he saw a car approaching from this city and tried to give a warning of the man in the road by blinking his headlights, but apparently it was not noticed until too late. Bounds, in the approaching car, said he was unaware of anyone in the road until too late. He said he only had a sensation of something dragging under the car and of seeing something rolling off onto the south shoulder. He turned around at the access road and returned to the city. From a filling station, he called city police and told them he had seen a man lying on the road, apparently dead. Meanwhile Pineda who had seen Bounds' car go by came into the city to secure an ambulance and to report the accident. He gave a description of the Bounds car and officers arranged road blocks on each road leading to the city. It was from this description, that the car was noticed in the city, and Bounds was picked up for questioning. A detailed examination of the underside of the car turned up a scrap of cloth matching that of the victim's pants. Highway patrol, sheriff office, and city police cooperated in the investigation. Patrolman Harold Popish said Romero was dragged 93 feet from the point of impact. The victim incurred compound fractures of both legs, fractured pelvis, fractured back, fractured wrist, internal injuries and severe lacerations of the head and body. Earlier in the evening, city police received a complaint from a woman at the pavilion dance that someone was sitting in her car and would not get out. On investigating, police found Romero in the (unreadable) he appeared to be intoxicated and asked that he be allowed to sit in the open for some fresh air. That was the last seen of him until the accident. Romero regained consciousness while in Lamme Hospital yesterday and talked with officers. He told them he had been to the dance in the company of two other youths. They apparently became separated when Romero went outside. Romero, one of a family of 13, was born in Walsenburg in 1939. He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Rosita Romero, who resides in a house just south of Cucharas River; eight brothers, Eloy of Oregon, Ramon of Pueblo, Julian of the U.S. Navy, Phillip, Max, Ray, Sam and Mike, all of the family home just south of the Cucharas River here; three sisters, Mrs. Amalia Arrellano and Mrs. Josephine Gomez of Pueblo, and Miss Mary Romero of the family home; and his maternal grandmother Mrs. Manuelita Gonzales of Pueblo, He was a member of St. Mary Church.

Romero, Tomas
Tomas Romero – Walsenburg World – July 28, 1903 - Mysterious Murder - Hastings last Saturday (25th) was the scene of a mysterious murder. The body of a man was found Saturday morning partly submerged in water under a bridge that spans an arroyo at that place. At first it was supposed that the man had been drunk and had fallen from the bridge and broken his neck. The body identified as that of Tomas Romero, a well-known citizen of that camp. Further investigation, however, revealed the fact that Romero's death was not a mere accident. At the Catholic Church which is only a short distance from where the bridge stands, there was found a rock which was covered with blood and near by was a pool of congealed blood and a mat of hair. Following up the clew (sic) it was found that the hair was Romero's and that he had a bad gash in his head. It is evident that Romero was murdered near the church and then carried to the bridge and thrown over. Romero is said to have been an inoffensive fellow and there is great mystery as to what could have been the motive of the murderer. Romero leaves a wife and two children. He had been a miner but was just before his death working outside helping the marshal attend to the cleaning of the camp.
