Man on the run after allegedly shooting, killing wife in Pinal County Monday night
PINAL COUNTY, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Pinal County sheriff’s deputies are searching for a man who allegedly shot and killed his wife on Monday night near Stanfield.
Deputies responded to a call around 9 p.m. from a home near Padilla Road and State Route 347 after a child told them that a family member was dying, and her husband shot her. When they arrived at the scene, they found a 30-year-old woman, later identified as Julieta Marin Amador, who had died from a gunshot wound.
The suspect, 32-year-old Ismael Ortega Hernandez, ran from the home, and his cell phone was found in the area. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and black pants and is estimated to be about 5′5″- 5′7″ with a thin build.
“This turd shot his wife in cold blood right in front of a child,” said Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb. “We are absolutely looking for him, and we hope if you have any information that, you will call us and let us know. We want to catch this guy.”
Investigators say Hernandez should be treated as armed and dangerous. If you’ve seen him or know where he is, you are asked to call 911 or the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office. The mugshot was taken after a prior offense.
