Arrest Made In Greene County Murder

Greene County deputies have made an arrest in their first murder of 2010.

Juan Ventura is charged with Friday's murder of his roommate, Julian Mondragon.

Sheriff Lemmie Smith says the stabbing happened Friday morning at the home the two men lived in on Ramon Barrientos Lane.

The sheriff says the two men had been drinking and an argument preceded the stabbing.

The 37-year-old Ventura is being held without bond.

    I love how people talk junk about mexicans but if you all only knew how life was for them you would want to make it better also so think before you decide to become racial and think about the people you hurt and some love when you talk ugly about people

    We need to close the "knife show loophole". If there had been background checks on the purchase of knives, this would never have happened... But at least he didn't use a gun to murder his roommate. Somehow, that makes this less of a crime in the eyes of people like Sara Brady and NY Mayer Michael Bloomberg...

    Yes, this happens frequently with my friends. We kill each other all the time. It's no big deal.
