A third person died this weekend in a brutal machete attack in central Iowa late last month. Juan Jimenez, 78, of Perry had been in coma for several weeks. He died of his injuries suffered in a vicious attack on October 29.
Twenty-five-year-old Carlos Marlo Hernandez-Ventura is already in custody in the killings of 34-year-old Lourdes Flor De Leake and her daughter, 14-year-old Melany Barraza. All three of the victims were found in a home that Jimenez was renting to the girl and her mother.
Court documents show Hernandez-Ventura used a machete in the attack and the victims all suffered multiple lacerations.
