HOUSTON (AP) — A former girlfriend of an 18-year-old accused of killing a girl in a satanic ritual has testified in the Houston capital murder trial.
The Houston Chronicle reports Agapita Gonzales, who gave birth to Jose Reyes’ child in May 2013, said Tuesday that she feared for her life after hearing him speak about killing a 15-year-old several days after it happened.
Prosecutors say Reyes killed Corriann Cervantes in February in a vacant apartment southeast of Houston. A 16-year-old boy also is charged and is expected to stand trial later.
Prosecutors say the two boys were hoping to make a deal with the devil when they disfigured the girl’s body, including carving an upside down crucifix on her stomach.
A message seeking comment was left with defense attorney Jerald Graber.
