    Jose E. Reyes Charged in Girl's Death Linked With Occult



    Two teens have been charged with capital murder in the death of a girl whose killing has been linked with the occult.

    Jose E. Reyes, 17, was arrested on Sunday in the NASA-area slaying, Houston police said on Monday. A 16-year-old boy was arrested on Monday.

    They were charged in the death of a 15-year-old girl identified by medical examiners as Corriann Cervantes, whose body was found about 4:10 a.m. Saturday in the 16400 block of El Camino Real, between El Dorado Boulevard and Bay Area Boulevard.

    A criminal complaint accuses Reyes of kidnapping the girl on Wednesday then striking her on the head with the lid of a toilet tank.

    Cervantes was found in a vacant apartment. A person there saw a door that was open. The teen was partially clothed, had head trauma and appeared to have been sexually assaulted, Houston police said.

    Evidence on the girl's body and in the apartment indicated occult activity had occurred, police said.

    Reyes is in the Harris County jail with no bail. The 16-year-old, who's unidentified because of his age, was referred to the Harris County Juvenile Probation Authority.

    Official: Deal with devil prompted girl's killing

    Two teenage boys were hoping to make a deal with the devil when they sexually assaulted and killed a 15-year-old suburban Houston girl in a satanic ritual, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

    Seventeen-year-old Jose E. Reyes and a 16-year-old boy are accused of disfiguring the girl's body, including carving an upside down crucifix on her stomach.

    Reyes and the 16-year-old boy, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, each face a capital murder charge for the death of Corriann Cervantes.

    Authorities say that after the boys lured Cervantes to a vacant apartment in southeast Houston on Feb. 5, they hit her with an ashtray, a toilet tank lid and a window blind rod, strangled her and also stabbed her in the face with a screwdriver.

    "What happened in that vacant apartment was sadistic. What will eventually happen in the ... courtroom will be justice," Harris County prosecutor John Jordan told reporters Tuesday.

    Reyes, who was arrested Sunday, made a brief court appearance Tuesday. He is being held without bond in the Harris County Jail.

    His attorney, Jerald Graber, said he could not comment on the case because he had just been appointed by the court and knew few of the details related to the charges.

    The 16-year-old boy is in being held in a juvenile detention facility.

    Jordan said the younger boy had heard Reyes claim that he had sold his soul to the devil and the 16-year-old wanted to do the same.

    "The juvenile inquired ... that if he committed a murder, would that basically initiate him into being able to sell his soul to the devil, of which Mr. Reyes said, 'Yes,'" Jordan said.

    Jordan said that at one point during the assault, Cervantes yelled out to them, "Why are you doing this to me?"

    The boys held down Cervantes to keep her from escaping, authorities said.

    Authorities are still trying to determine if Cervantes died from strangulation, the blows she received to her head or from internal injuries from the sexual assault, Jordan said.

    According to police, Cervantes' partly clothed body was discovered early Saturday when a resident of the apartment building noticed the door to the vacant unit was open.

    Jordan said Reyes' family went to authorities after the teenager made "some admissions" to them about what had happened.

    "They did the right thing. Clearly they were offended by his conduct," he said.

    At Reyes' home, "there were some signs of devil worship and things of that nature," Jordan said.

    Authorities said Cervantes and the 16-year-old boy had apparently attended the same school.

    Tiffany Waters, Cervantes' mother, said Tuesday by telephone that she and her family did not wish to speak with reporters at this time.

    Because Reyes and the younger boy are both under 18, they are not eligible for the death penalty, Jordan said. No decisions have been made by prosecutors on whether the 16-year-old will be tried as an adult.

    Murdered teen's family speaks out for first time since her death

    For the first time, we're hearing from the family of the Clear Lake teenager who was brutally murdered, allegedly by two teenage boys who claimed they were making a deal with the devil.

    Corriann Cervantes' family says what happened to her should be a warning to others.

    At a media appearance on Friday, an aunt read aloud a Bible verse, "For I am persuaded by neither death nor life nor angels..."

    It's an affirmation of faith amid allegations of a brutal and possibly satanic sex assault and murder. Corriann Cervantes, 15, a popular, church-going tenth grader, was found dead on Saturday in a vacant apartment in Clear Lake.

    Her aunt Michelle Abernethy said, "What happened to her was evil. It wasn't just the boys doing this. It was demonic forces working through her."

    Police say it took days to find the body. They believe Cervantes was murdered on Wednesday. Her parents last saw her on Tuesday.

    "It was a normal day," said Corriann's father, Cory Cervantes. "She wanted to go out and we told her to come back home, make sure she came back home, and she just never came back. We tried calling her and that's when we filed a missing person's report."

    Two suspects -- Jose Reyes, 17, and a juvenile -- are accused of her murder and are being held without bond. Prosecutors say they confessed, saying it was part of a deal with the devil.

    This family says they don't remember ever meeting the suspects.

    "Really watch who your kids are hanging out with because this could have happened to anybody's child," cautioned Cory Cervantes, the victim's aunt.

    The Cervantes family is now making funeral arrangements. Her two siblings -- a 13-year-old boy, and a 10-year-old girl have lost their older sister -- a girl who loved taking photos, listening to music and playing soccer.

    Cory said, "Being our firstborn, she is very special to us. She had so much life in her. She loved her friends, her family."

    Cervantes' family identified her body at the medical examiner's office on Friday. They say they would like to forget those gruesome images and remember her as she was -- a sweet, friendly high school student with a lot of potential.

    The family is still making plans for the funeral, but they say they would like to hold a large public event, because would like to include many community members who have offered their support and condolences.

    Juvenile accused in satanic killing to remain behind bars

    A teenager taken into custody for the possibly satanic murder of a 15-year-old girl is staying locked up.

    A custody hearing for the boy was held Tuesday morning in juvenile court. Police say the teen and 17-year-old Jose Reyes killed Corriann Cervantes earlier this month as part of a satanic ritual.

    Reyes is charged with capital murder. The 16-year-old who was in court Tuesday has not been officially charged yet, but prosecutors say charges are pending.

    Teen claims Clear Lake murder suspect raped her last year

    There are new developments in the brutal killing of a Clear Lake teen. Eyewitness News was in court when the 16-year-old suspect went before a judge, but it's the 17-year-old suspect we're hearing new allegations against. Another young girl claims Jose Reyes attacked her, and raped her.

    "It could have been me that was dead right now. That's the worst thing," she said.

    This 17-year-old claims capital murder suspect Jose Reyes raped her in a Webster park last February.

    "He took a part of me that I will never get back, ever," she said. "I'm never going to be OK, and her family will never be OK, ever."

    The girl reported the alleged assault to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, but charges were never filed. A sheriff's office spokesperson says the alleged victim and her mother missed multiple scheduled interviews, so the case was closed.

    Now, almost exactly one year later, Reyes is in the Harris County Jail. His alleged accomplice, a 16-year-old, is locked up in a juvenile detention center, where on Wednesday a judge ruled he will remain for now. Both teens are accused of brutally sexually assaulting and murdering 15-year-old Coriann Cervantes in a possibly satanic ritual.

    "She was young. She was innocent," the teen raped said. "It should have never came to this. I feel so sorry for her family."

    This alleged victim admits she was drunk and high during the alleged assault, but she says she was still conscious when Reyes allegedly raped her, then directed three of his friends to do the same.

    She said, "I know him and what he's capable of."

    She says she's speaking out to show support for Cervantes and her family.

    She said, "At first I didn't want to do it, honestly, because I didn't want all this stress but they wanted me to do it honestly. They were like thank you so much for doing this."

    On Wednesday night, some members of the community gathered for a memorial in Cervantes' honor.

    "There's always been evil out there," community member Ashlee Brown said.

    The vigil was also a spiritual lesson of good and evil.

    "Someone that I knew, someone so close. Is just gone now," one attendee said.
