Greeley boy stabbed, mother arrested

Susan Lucero, 41, faces multiple charges including attempted first-degree murder, according to Greeley Police.

GREELEY, Colo. — A Greeley mother faces charges of attempted murder after an incident during which she stabbed her 10-year-old son and herself, according to the Greeley Police Department.

Around 5 a.m. on Dec. 15, Greeley Police officers were dispatched to a home in the 200 block of 9th Avenue for reports that two people had been stabbed.

Those officers were initially told that a suspect had fled the scene, a release from Greeley Police says.

When they arrived they found Susan Lucero, 41, and her 10-year-old son both suffering from multiple stab wounds. Both were taken to a hospital with serious wounds, according to police.

Through their investigation, detectives determined there was no outstanding suspect and that it appeared that Lucero stabbed her child, and then herself.

A warrant was issued for her arrest on the following charges:

  • Attempted first-degree murder
  • First-degree assault
  • Child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury
  • Felony menacing

Lucero was cleared from the hospital and transported to the Weld County Jail on Dec. 18. She's due in court on Thursday.
