ENID, Okla. — Enid Police Department has arrested half a dozen people in connection to a home invasion last week that left a 41-year-old Enid woman dead.
Capt. Tim Jacobi said the six people were arrested overnight as police continue to investigate the home invasion that occurred in the early morning hours of Sept. 11, 2019, at 413 W. Vine and caused the death Diana Aide Baez.
"A number of search warrants were also served at various locations in Enid and resulted in the discovery of related evidence," Jacobi said. "No other specific details are being released as this investigation remains very active and ongoing."
Police identified the arrested as:
• Leoncio “Leo” Hernandez, 33, of Enid, booked on a complaint of accessory to murder.
• Luis “Chapo” Macias, 26, of Enid, booked on a complaint of accessory to murder.
• Eva Meraz-Corral, 47, of Enid, booked on a complaint of accessory to murder.
• Lindsey Marie Nash, 37, of Enid, booked on complaints of child abuse and possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
• Blaine Allen Coleman, 42, of Enid, booked on a complaint of child abuse.
• An unnamed juvenile, 15, booked on a complaint of obstructing an officer.
Police anticipate changes, or additions to the charges, as Garfield County District Attorney’s Office begins to evaluate the case and the investigation progresses, Joacobi said.
At 2:41 a.m., police were called to 413 W. Vine, Baez's residence for an assault in progress. Responding officers found a woman inside the residence with life-threatening injuries. Children present told officers masked men forced their way inside the residence, attacked the woman and fled before police arrived.
Baez succumbed to her injuries Saturday afternoon at OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.
Police previously said there was no indication the home invasion on West Vine was related to a home invasion reported Wednesday on South Jefferson.
