Anger at Ex’s new relationship
A search warrant says a man accused of running down his young son and the boy’s mother confronted her about a new relationship just before striking them with his SUV in Fitchburg.
Police said the domestic-related incident between Castillo-Dimas, 30, and the 20-year-old Fitchburg woman unfolded Monday afternoon in the 2100 block of Red Arrow Trail in the Allied Drive neighborhood.
The boy was still pinned underneath one of the vehicle’s wheels when police arrived on the scene Monday. Two-year-old Yandel Castillo-Castillo was killed. His mother, Maria del Rosario Castillo-Castillo, was injured.
Officials said preliminary results from a forensic autopsy indicate that the child’s death was the result of major blunt force trauma caused by a motor vehicle.
Child’s mother rammed then non lethally stabbed
The mother and child were returning home from lunch with Miguel Menendez-Ruvalcaba when they were confronted by the child’s father.
The warrant says the father told the child’s mother “you’ll see what’s going to happen to you and your child,” then accelerated and struck them.
The State Journal says the father then got a knife from his SUV and stabbed the mother. She survived puncture wounds to her neck.
