A Little Rock man has been arrested after fatally slashing a woman's throat and nonfatally cutting his own, authorities said.

Officers received a call shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday from a 14-year-old girl who said her father, Jose Carlos Romero, 43, had cut her mother's throat and then his own before fleeing from the house in the 6900 block of Grace Road and into the woods, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

Rosa Dina Castro Orellana, 39, was found in the home's living room, lying flat on her back, with her throat cut severely, the report states. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers searched the area but didn't immediately find Romero. Later, he returned to the house and was arrested, police said.

Romero was taken to UAMS Medical Center for treatment of the cut on his throat; his condition wasn't immediately available.
