Second murder of week on Cape Cod; CO detector saves Eastham woman

Woman's body found in Bourne, husband charged with murder
BOURNE
- State and Bourne Police are investigating the Cape's second murder this week.

About 6:30 AM a neighbor discovered the body of 66-year Elaine Romero on a sun porch of a home on Tahanto Road next to the Romero residence (believed to be the one thumb tacked in the map) in an area of well to do waterfront homes in the Pocasset section of Bourne.

A press release from the Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe and Bourne Police announced her husband 69-year old William Romero (seen here at his arraignment) had been charged with her murder.

O'Keefe later reportedly told media outlets Mrs. Robero had been stabbed to death in an apparent domestic dispute. Authorities believe she may have tried to get to her neighbor's for help.

The murder comes just five days after a Marstons Mills man was stabbed to death in an apparent love triangle gone bad (read story).

CO detector saves Eastham woman
EASTHAM
- A faulty hot water heater is blamed for filling an Eastham home with deadly carbon monoxide gas early this morning. Fire crews responded to 70 Arrowhead Road after the woman reported her CO detector sounding sometime after 1 AM and discovered the elevated levels of the odorless, colorless gas. Thanks to the detector the woman was not injured. Firefighters ventilated the house and a technician was called to make repairs to the water heater. Posted on 10/06 at 2:00 PM.
