Roswell man charged with murder

A murder case against a Roswell man has made it to district court.

Authorities have charged 24-year-old Antonio Romero of killing a man and burying him in an East 12th Street backyard a year and a half ago.

They have accused Romero of shooting 19-year-old Javier Castillo.

The criminal complaint describes Castillo’s hands as bound behind the back. He also had his feet bound.

Apparently, Castillo told his mother he had seen a murder at East Chery Street and North Orchard Avenue, and that those responsible knew him as a witness.
