The second suspect in a grisly murder case was found guilty Friday in what has been described as a satanic ritual killing of a 15-year-old Houston girl.
Victor Alas and Jose E. Reyes were convicted for strangling, stabbing and sexually assaulting Corriann Cervantes last year. They also carved an upside-down cross in her abdomen.
Following a week-long trial in District Judge Brock Thomas’ court, a jury found 17-year-old Alas guilty, giving him an automatic life sentence. During his trial, prosecutors shared a video of Alas confessing to strangling Cervantes.
Later in the trial, Alas testified, an unusual move. “Alas chose to take the stand and say he gave a false statement to law enforcement at the location and that he did not take part in the murder, but the jury saw through that,” prosecutor John Jordan said.
Defense attorney Mario Madrid said Alas’ confession was “very difficult to overcome.”
“It was a difficult case with overwhelming evidence,” Madrid said. “We fought hard but we certainly respect the jury’s verdict.”
The slaying was investigated as a satanic ritual killing because of the cross carved into Cervantes’ abdomen and objects found at the scene.
