A teen female MS-13 gang member has pleaded guilty to the revenge killing of another girl after telling her she ‘would see her in hell’ and stabbing her in savage vengeance for her own boyfriend’s death.

Venus Romero Iraheta, 18, pleaded guilty to the murder in Fairfax County, Virginia on Monday, one year to the day after brutally stabbing 15-year-old Damaris A. Reyes Rivas 13 times.
Prosecutors said Iraheta was the main aggressor in the gruesome gang torture and slaying, which was captured on cell phone video. A total of 10 people have been charged in the murder.

 Iraheta, then 17, believed Damaris had lured her boyfriend, Christian Sosa Rivas, to his death.
Both Iraheta and Rivas were members of MS-13, an ultra-violent transnational gang based in Central America that has terrorized parts of Maryland and Northern Virginia, investigators said.

Authorities suspect that Rivas’s death was ordered by top ranking members of the group in El Salvador, supposedly upset over his claim that he was a leading member of the group.

His body wasn’t found by police until days later, on January 12, in the icy Potomac River.
In revenge for her supposed role in Rivas’ murder, Iraheta lured Damaris to an area near Lake Accokirk Park in Fairfax County on the night of January 8, 2017 with an offer to smoke marijuana, according to prosecutors.
Three ghoulish cell phone videos, which have been previously played or described in court, show parts of what happened next.
Jose Cerrato, then 17, shot the videos to prove his loyalty to MS-13, prosecutors said.

 Prosecutors said Thursday that they believe 17-year-old Venus Romero Iraheta was the chief attacker who carried out the brutal slaying Maryland teen, of Damaris Alexandra Reyes Rivas.

Iraheta lured Damaris to a wooded area near this park with an offer to smoke weed together, prosecutors say. Three gruesome cell phone videos show the gang torturing the girl.

The first video shows the 10 gang members surrounding Damaris in a wooded area of the park, screaming in Spanish and berating her, the Washington Post reported. One gang member snaps a cigar cutter menacingly at the girl and tells her she’s should loose a finger.
A second video shows Damaris stripped of her shirt and shoes, standing shivering in the cold while the group interrogates her about Rivas’ death.
Iraheta wields a large hunting knife in the video and a voice is heard off-camera urging ‘stick the steel in her’ in Spanish.
The cruel torture then moved to one final location, near a Beltway overpass.
Iraheta a recited her full name to ensure Damaris knew her killer’s name and ‘told the victim she would never forgive her and would see her in hell’, an FBI agent testified based on witness interviews.

The third video shows the sickening aftermath of the stabbing, with Damaris lying bloody on her back amid a pile of leaves.

One gang member, Wilmer A. Sanchez-Serrano, is then allegedly seen jamming a large sharpened stick into the girl’s throat over and over before the video cuts off abruptly.
Of the others charged in the case, three pleaded guilty in October and are set to be sentenced on May 5.
Cindy Blanco Hernandez, 19, pleaded guilty to two counts of abduction by force and the abduction of another juvenile female.

Aldair Miranda Carcamo, 18, pleaded guilty to gang participation and two counts of abduction by force. Emerson Fugon Lopez, 17, pleaded guilty to abduction in connection with Alexandra’s death and gang participation.
Four other suspects are set for trial in the coming months.
If Iraheta had gone to trial for the murder, she likely would have faced damning testimony from the others involved.
She is set to be sentenced on May 25, and faces a maximum of life in prison plus 20 years.

  1. Why only 20 years? So we can support her through our tax dollars? So she can recruit other women while in jail? Drown the animal.
