Local man sought for murder is arrested

EDINBURG — Tortured and bleeding from wounds police say her boyfriend had inflicted on her in an angry rage, an Edinburg woman mustered enough strength to seek help Sunday morning.

Inside the woman’s bedroom in a home in the 3100 block of Celeste Road, officers, who initially responded to a domestic dispute call, came across a disturbing scene: the lifeless body of a 24-year-old man believed to be the woman’s son who had come to her aid, officials said.

The Harlingen man police say killed him and tried to kill her is now in an Edinburg jail awaiting arraignment.

Sigifredo Ramos was arrested about 8:30 a.m. yesterday at a residence in the 28000 block of Rangerville Road in Harlingen in connection with the stabbing death of a 24-year-old man and the attempted killing of his girlfriend, Edinburg Assistant Police Chief Oscar Treviño said.

Edinburg Police with the help of the FBI Safe Streets Task Force and the South Texas Anti-Gang Unit, a task force made up of local agencies, arrested Ramos, 55, who had been wanted in connection with the stabbing death of Felipe Vega and the attempted homicide of an unidentified Edinburg woman since early Sunday morning, Treviño said.

Police declined to reveal Vega’s relationship to the unidentified woman but did confirm the 24-year-old man lived at the residence where the attack took place.
