Springfield police allege man killed mother, stabbed taxi driver

Police say 41-year-old Luis Rosa was arrested Monday morning after flipping the taxi cab he had allegedly stolen after stabbing the 25-year-old driver. The driver required treatment for a cut on his shoulder.

Police determined Rosa was a suspect in the death of 57-year-old Norma Perez, who was found dead in her apartment by relatives just before 5 p.m. Sunday. Relatives forced their way into the home after being unable to contact Perez.

Police say Perez was Rosa’s mother.

Rosa is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Springfield District Court on charges including murder and armed carjacking.
