Dimas Coronado Chafino, 48, was arrested on Thursday at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport on triple homicide charges for the 2018 murders of 24-year-old Oralia Nunez, 34-year-old Omar Gonzalez and Nunez’s unborn child, according to the Arizona Republic.

Police say Chafino killed Nunez, her unborn child and Gonzalez on Sept. 1, 2018. Nunez and Chafino were married, but had been estranged for two months prior to her death, police said. Gonzalez was a housemate.
Nunez was eight months pregnant.
A relative arrived home from work and called police after discovering the victims being shot. When police arrived, Gonzalez was deceased and Nunez was transported to a local hospital, but succumbed to her gunshot wounds.
In the past, officers had responded multiple times to Nunez’s home for domestic violence calls related to Chafino, said Phoenix Police Sgt. Armando Carbajal. The most recent call was Aug. 11, 2018.

Neighbors said officers had, on at least one occasion, parked outside the home overnight because Chafino had sent text messages to Nunez threatening her life.
According to reports, Nunez had filed a protection order against Chafino two months before she died and had testified she feared he would kill her. He was reportedly ordered to stay away from Nunez and their children, and he was not permitted to have a firearm.
Police say after the shooting, Chafino then fled with their two children from the mother’s mobile home near 32nd Avenue and Van Buren Street where police later discovered the bodies. An Amber Alert was issued after the two boys were reported missing.
The children were found two years later, but details on how they were located were not disclosed.

According to Breitbart Texas law enforcement sources and Mexican media reports, Chafino was born and raised in Mexico. Nunez and her children arrived in the U.S. on a visa, but Chafino entered illegally, law enforcement sources said.

Breitbart Texas emailed the Phoenix Police Department media relations bureau to check on the immigration status of Chafino, but received no response.
Chafino reportedly has a violent history in his native Mexico and was previously arrested for murder, but fled to the U.S. with his family, according to local media reports.
Chafino allegedly worked as a cartel hitman and fled to the U.S. because a team of assassins from Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, were hunting him.
The brother of Nunez, Ramon Nunez Gonzalez, allegedly told Mexican media that his sister was previously beaten by Chafino and received death threats via text message. According to the victim’s brother, his sister took out an order prohibiting her husband from being near her or the boys.
Chafino admitted to police on Thursday that he fled to Mexico with his two children who are “protected individuals on a valid order of protection,” but he denied killing anyone, according to a probable cause statement filed in court documents.
He was arrested on suspicion of three counts of first-degree murder as well as kidnapping, burglary and interfering with judicial proceedings.
His bail was set at $2 million. He will appear in Maricopa County Superior Court on Thursday for a preliminary hearing.
Back in May we reported that nearly 200 illegal aliens were freed by federal judges and that some of them were sex offenders and killers.
In addition, some prisoners are being released under the guise that inmates are vulnerable to getting Covid-19. In many cases, released prisoners have committed crimes and have been rearrested.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California filed a federal lawsuit on Thursday against the Orange County sheriff to force him and the county to reduce the jails population to better implement social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. https://t.co/JTVleRmT4n
