TIJUANA (KGTV) -- A United States citizen was arrested in Tijuana on Wednesday night for allegedly killing a 19-year-old woman in the city’s Zona Norte.
Tijuana police arrested the suspect, identified as Logan Matthew Kelley, 26, who is accused of allegedly killing Isis Atalia Montoya Romero, 19, inside a hotel on Coahuila street.
While wearing a face mask, Kelley walked up behind Romero and sliced her neck with a clip-point blade, according to Tijuana police. He tried to run away but he was chased by a security guard.
A State Department official says Kelly is originally from Ohio and will remain in preventive detention, while the investigations against him continue.
The homicide was the 223rd so far in 2021 in Tijuana.
