Raul Alexander Cuevas, 31, was arrested last Wednesday in connection with the murder of Jesus R. Urrutia, 39, who was charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Cuevas’ mother

Michelle E. Luna, 52. Luna was found mortally wounded with multiple stab wounds in Nampa, around 20 miles west of Boise, and Urrutia was identified as a suspect in her death because she knew him.

The Nampa Police Department issued a press release stating that on March 28, officers and emergency medical services responded to a 911 call reporting Luna’s stabbing at a West Grouse Street residence. Luna had “several stab wounds to her body” and ultimately succumbed to her injuries. On March 29, there was a call of another stabbing victim, believed to be Urrutia, found at a gas station.

When Nampa police responded to the call, they reportedly found Urrutia “slumped over in the car, which was running but in the park.”

Cuevas was found by police 20 miles from the gas station and arrested for allegedly murdering Urrutia in what police believe was an act of revenge for Luna’s killing

The Ada County Coroner’s Office ruled that Urrutia’s death was a homicide after he suffered a “sharp force injury wound to the chest,” according to police. Cuevas has been charged with first-degree murder. However, authorities have not officially determined a motive behind Urrutia’s death and said they are “still figuring out why Cuevas fatally stabbed Urrutia.”

The incident shocked the local community and left many questioning the senselessness of the violence. The police have urged anyone with information to come forward and assist with the investigation.

The case has yet to be fully resolved, and the family and friends of both victims are still reeling from the tragedy.
