A suspected illegal immigrant who was just recently released on bond from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody was arrested yesterday in the fatal stabbing of his wife.

Maria Gonzalez was stabbed to death on Friday, although her husband, Salvador Garcia-Sanchez, was just arrested yesterday since he remained hospitalized after accidentally stabbing himself during the alleged murder.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, Garcia-Sanchez, 31, dragged his wife across their apartment by her hair, and stabbed her twice in the chest with a butcher knife.

Phoenix police Sergeant Steve Martos tells New Times the stabbing came after an argument Garcia-Sanchez and Gonzalez were having about money.

Four of the five children were fathered by Garcia-Sanchez, and are between the ages of 6 and 12.

Garcia-Sanchez was pronounced dead a little more than 30 minutes after the stabbing.

According to the court documents, Garcia-Sanchez fell over at some point during the incident, and he was stabbed in the chest as he fell on the knife he was holding, resulting in his hospitalization.

Garcia-Sanchez faces charges of first-degree murder and kidnapping, and was denied bond.

Garcia-Sanchez had been in ICE custody due to illegal-immigration charges, and although authorities state in court documents that Garcia-Sanchez may flee to Mexico if he's released, it's not clear if that's where he emigrated from.

Another murder courtesy of the Obama amnesty and the incompetence of Janet Napolitano.  This is just one more example of the Federal government refusing to do their job and allowing criminal immigrant invaders to run wild in our country.  Oh, but I am sure he was just another "hard-worker" who just wanted a "better life".

Lets be clear on this.. it was not the legal status that killed this woman.. it wan an animal who should be put away for a long long time.

Embezzlers are not allowed to keep on embezzling until their day in court. Why are criminal immigrants allowed to keep practicing their crimes? Just letting them out on bail is like leaving embezzlers on the job with access to steal even more. Illegal immigrants should have to await their day in immigration court in their own country.

 

If he had been sent to his own country to await his day in immigration court, she would still be ALIVE.

Too bad he wasn't deported. Now we have to go the trouble of investigating the case, charging him, putting him on trial for murder and hopefully executing him. And I'm opposed to SB1070 and capital punishment. But I am making an exception in this case. Doing anything short of killing him makes no sense.

 As I am sure of a white person going on a killing spree at a movie theater has mental disorders. If illegal immigration bothers you so much then why not become a border patrol agent and make yourself useful. Maybe you can make a change on the security of our borders. By your ignorant comment you make it sound like all illegal immigrants are running around going on killing sprees.

 @lydia_guzman let's be even more clear on this. had he been summarily deported, wifey would still be alive. too bad, it sounds like this guy would have fit nicely in mexico's society.

 @wigglwagon not arguing, but embezzlers are continuing to commit their crimes unchecked. look at all our elected officials here in Az. only rarely are they ousted or stopped, and when they are, we replace them with another. but, yes, the guy should have been in custody or gone instead of on bail

 @eric.nelson745 Probably not, he will most likely get out on bail and disappear again.  The DOJ and ICE have no interest in deporting illegal immigrants, even murderers like him are routinely set free.

 @MarissaLove A white person going on a killing spree has absolutely nothing to do with this story.  The man was arrested and handed over to the DHS who let him go, that is why his legal status is relevant here.  And border patrol agents are some of the fiercest critics of the DHS "catch and release" policy, it is not uncommon to arrest the same people mutliple times in a 24 hour period because the DHS has declined to deport.

 @mirandalily14 Well, G.O.D. may ultimately be the judge but he will have to pay for his crime(s) here on Earth. Am I reading you correctly that we should never comment on this and other horrendous deeds these guys perpetrate or should we just keep our opinions to ourselves?
