Houston woman’s brother-in-law accused of stabbing her to death: Lydia Gutierrez may have died in alleged plot by jailed husband


HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Houston police are investigating whether a man accused of stabbing his sister-in-law to death did it in retaliation for reporting his brother to police.

Greg Montelongo, 40, is charged with murder in the stabbing death of a 47-year-old woman on Wednesday. Friends identify her as Lydia Gutierrez.

It happened at a home in the 6300 block of Gay Street near the North Loop and Fulton. The woman’s 18-year-old son was also stabbed by an intruder, police say, in a ski mask.

“He walked in, and proceeded inside, which is when he stabbed multiple people,” Houston Police Homicide Sgt. Blake Roberts said on Wednesday.

Police say the son got a gun and shot his mother’s killer, who was found a few blocks away. Once unmasked, he was identified as Montelongo.

ABC13 has learned he is the brother of the victim’s husband, and court records shed light on a possible motive.
