A pair of Nevada teenagers allegedly recorded a warped video where they joked about committing murder – three days after the 18-year-old boy and his 16-year-old girlfriend allegedly killed the girl’s dad and tried to dismember him. Aaron Guerrero and Sierra Halseth who were indicted in the death of 45-year-old Daniel Halseth, Sierra’s father. have been hit with a slew of charges including murder for the April death of Sierra’s father, Daniel Halseth.
Daniel Halseth was found in the garage of his Las Vegas home on April 9, his body burned. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said he was stabbed to death before his body was set on fire.
Police arrested the victim’s teen daughter and her boyfriend in Salt Lake City. They have been extradited back to Las Vegas from Utah to face prosecution. Meanwhile a recording of Aaron Guerrero and Sierra Halseth was found on their phones after their arrest, where the apparently unrepentant pair announce: ‘Welcome back to our YouTube Channel: Day 3 after murdering somebody,’ Guerrero says in the video, while they each show three fingers to the camera.
Halseth chimes in ‘Woah! Don’t put that on camera!’ before making a silly face.
‘It was worth it,’ Guerrero says while cradling her head in his hands.
The video shows Guerrero and Halseth lying together on what appears to be a sleeping bag inside a tent outdoors while Halseth giggle and covers her mouth with her hand.
Guerrero then pats her face twice before pretending to choke her – as she bugs her eyes out for the camera and makes a choking noise.
He then appears to kiss the top of her head as she lifts it from the ground.

Guerrero makes an unsettling laughing sound while the two nuzzle each other affectionately before the video ends.
The clip was uncovered by cops who arrested the teens in Salt Lake City, Utah, six days after Daniel’s burned body was found at his torched home. Cops believe the teens set the blaze to try and cover-up the murder, and also used a chainsaw and circular saw in an attempt to dismember the victim’s body.
It has yet to be revealed when exactly the video was shot, or if it was posted to any public social media.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Christopher Hamner said his office is considering whether to seek the death penalty for Guerrero, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported. Halseth’s age exempts her from the death penalty.
Las Vegas police had found Halseth’s body on April 9 after his own mother told officials she hadn’t heard from him in two days, KVVU-TV reported.
Guerrero’s parents approached cops investigating the scene just hours into the investigation to tell them they were looking for him and thought he might have run away with Halseth’s daughter.
According to KVVU-TV, Guerrero’s mother allegedly told cops her son and Sierra Halseth dated from June 2020 to December 2020 but their parents decided to keep them apart after they had previously planned on running away to Los Angeles.
The teens were arrested on April 13 after a warrant was issued for Guerrero. They were found in Salt Lake City when police stopped them to ask for proof of paid fare on a train and Guerrero allegedly admitted he did not have a ticket.
While searching the home, cops found a new chainsaw on the ground of the living room. In the kitchen, cops found a new chainsaw on the ground, as well as a handsaw in the kitchen “with apparent blood and tissue on the saw and in between the groves of the saw.”
Officers also found a circular saw with extra blades in packaging and two folding knives in the kitchen. Investigators said “extensive” clean-up efforts were attempted throughout the house.
Police on Friday said it appeared the fire was intentionally set to cover up the deadly stabbing.
The day before Daniel Halseth’s body was found, Guerrero ran away from home.
The teenagers then purchased a circular saw, saw blades, bleach, lighter fluid, disposable gloves and dropcloth from stores near the victim’s home.
Guerrero was seen on surveillance video from Home Depot buying the saws and gloves that were found in the home, police said.
More surveillance footage form a Winco grocery store shows Sierra Halseth buying two gallons of bleach and a gallon of orange juice, police told KVVU-TV. ATM surveillance video also shows her using her father’s debit cards.
Halseth and Guerrero reportedly, face several charges including, Conspiracy to commit murder, Murder with a deadly weapon, First degree arson, four counts Fraudulent use of credit or debit card, Conspiracy to commit robbery and Robbery with use of a deadly weapon
