Suspects in FOP fatal stabbing indicted on 53 charges, prosecutor’s office say
BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - Four suspects in a fatal stabbing at the Hamilton FOP lodge are indicted on 53 charges, according to Butler County Prosecutor Mike Gmoser.
Gmoser says the 53-count indictment was issued for three men and one woman: Oscar Daniel Flores-Lara, Juan Antonio Hidalgo-Flores, Luis Eduardo Hidalgo-Flores and Sara Elena Rodriguez-Remigio.
According to the indictment, 51 of the charges are for the three men. Those charges are murder, attempted murder and felonious assault.
The remaining two charges are for Rodriguez-Remigio. Those charges are tampering with evidence and obstructing justice, the indictment says.
On May 7, Hamilton police were called to the FOP lodge on Joe Nuxhall Way around 10:30 p.m.
Sgt. Rich Burkhardt says the lodge was hosting a private quinceañera when some uninvited guests arrived.
Ivan Israel Diaz Lira, 20, died from a stab wound, according to the Butler County Coroner.
Three other victims were treated at the hospital for non-life-threatening stab wounds.
Burkhardt says the stabbing was an isolated incident targeting the victims.
Hamilton police are offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to the arrests of Oscar Daniel Flores-Lara, Juan Antonio Hidalgo-Flores and Luis Eduardo Hidalgo-Flores.
According to the report, Rodriguez-Remigio was arrested for allegedly hiding a weapon used in connection with the deadly stabbing and then lied to a police sergeant.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Tony Kiep at 513-868-5811 ext. 1261.
