An Indiana teenager who murdered his pregnant girlfriend has been sentenced to 65 years in prison.
It feels like a light sentence to me considering the atrocity of his crime however he may spend the rest of his life in Prison. He was only given 10 years for murdering the unborn child.
If abortion were to be taken off the table and made illegal perhaps it would stop violent crimes like this. He was so mad his girlfriend did not choose to kill their baby he murdered her in rage.
According to DailyMail
- Aaron Trejo, 18, sentenced to 55 years for murder of Breana Rouhselang and to 10 years for feticide in the death of their unborn daughter, Aurora
- Trejo pleaded guilty last year to the December 2018 stabbing death of the six-month-pregnant cheerleader from Indiana
- Rouhselang was stabbed in the chest, strangled and dumped in the trash
- Trejo apologized in court to Breana’s family, saying: ‘there is no excuse for what I’ve done
- ‘Saying I’m sorry wouldn’t be enough, but it’s all I can give’
An Indiana teenager who pleaded guilty last year to murdering his pregnant 17-year-old girlfriend and their unborn child has been sentenced to 65 years for the violent crime.
Aaron Trejo learned his fate on Tuesday, with St Joseph County Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Hurley sentient him to 55 years for the murder of Breana Rouhselang and to 10 years for feticide in the death of their daughter, who was posthumously named ‘Aurora.’
The sentences are to run consecutively, but the 18-year-old Trejo will receive credit for 394 days served in jail.

In delivering her verdict, the judge remarked on the brutal death of the pregnant high school girl, who was stabbed in the chest, strangled and dumped in the trash.
‘You took her life in one of the most savage and violent manners I have seen in my career,’ Hurley told Trejo, according to reporting by South Bend Tribune.
Trejo pleaded guilty last October to killing Rouhselang in December 2018 because he was angry that the six-month pregnant cheerleader waited too long to get an abortion.
When given a chance to speak, the convicted killer apologized to the victim’s family in court.
‘There is no excuse for what I’ve done,’ he said. ‘Saying I’m sorry wouldn’t be enough, but it’s all I can give.’
Before the sentence was announced, members of Rouhselang’s family delivered emotional impact statements and asked the judge to jail Trejo for life.
