Armed with guns, the brother and sister duo allegedly tied up Gomez and his family members in the living room. Gomez was able to break free from his ties and confronted Alejandro Romero. During the struggle, police said both siblings shot Gomez, stole a purse from the home and fled the scene.
Police said Gomez died at the scene. His family members eventually freed themselves and dialed 911.
On Sept. 30, Gladys Romero was convicted on a misdemeanor charge. DNA retrieved from that charge matched DNA collected at the crime scene in the Gomez household 10 years ago.
The DNA and other corroborating evidence led detectives to both Alejandro and Gladys Romero.
