Roberto Martinez-Marinero: 25-Year-Old Kills Mother, Throws Brother In Dumpster, Another In River

Roberto Martinez-Marinero has turned himself into police custody, confessing to killing his mother, and causing potential harm to his two younger brothers.

According to the Huffington Post, the 25-year-old told police that he murdered his mother, 45-year-old Jesus Ismenia Marinero. The woman’s body was found in a ditch on Wednesday. He also admitted to throwing his 11-month-old brother in a dumpster. Lastly, Martinez-Marinero told authorities that he threw his 5-year-old brother into a river.

The boy still has not been located.

“Police said Martinez-Marinero admitted throwing the boy into the Elkhorn River. The Omaha Police Department is conducting a ground, air and water search along the river, with help from the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.”

The brother that Roberto Martinez-Marinero threw into a dumpster was found unharmed by a man who was cleaning out his car nearby. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Angel Ramirez-Marinero was left in a trash dumpster wearing only a diaper. The 11-month-old baby had a couple of scratches and bruises on him, but was otherwise in good condition considering. Police located Jesus Ismenia Marinero’s body on the same day that they got a call about Angel, but did not confirm that the cases were related (upon discovery, police did not identify the woman’s body as Marinero’s).

A search for 5-year-old Josue Ramirez-Marinero had been well underway for days. At first, many believed that the child was with his father, Jesus Marinero, who was seen picking his son up from daycare on Wednesday.

According to NewsOXY, an Amber Alert that was issued for Josue on Thursday has been canceled since the vehicle he was thought to be in has been located. However, police are still actively looking for the child. His father’s whereabouts are unknown.

Roberto Martinez-Marinero has been charged with first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony. His girlfriend, Gabriela Guevara, 24, was also arrested, and has been charged with accessory to the homicide.
