A Texas teenager who killed a 15-year-old girl and mutilated her dead body as a sick tribute to Satan will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Victor Alas, 16, was found guilty of capital murder Thursday for the horrific, ritualistic February 2014 death of Corriann Cervantes, whose body was found raped, covered in stab wounds and marked with a crucifix.
The conviction comes with an automatic life sentence, KPRC reported.
Alias’ co-killer, 17-year-old Jose Reyes, was found guilty of capital murder in December. He, too, was sentenced to life in prison. Both teens were tried as adults.
Reyes claimed he sold his soul to the devil — and he told Alas he could, too, if he killed one of his classmates, Alas told Houston investigators.
The two teen boys lured Cervantes to a vacant Houston apartment in February 2014.
Since she knew Alas, Cervantes likely entered the complex willing, but once inside, the Satanic horror show started, investigators said.
Alias strangled the girl with a belt while Reyes brutally beat her with an ashtray and a toilet tank lid, prosecutors said.
When she bit one of her attackers, the duo gouged her eyes out with a plastic curtain rod and stabbed her with a screwdriver.
The two raped her body after she died and carved an upside-down crucifix into her abdomen.
Cervantes’ body was so badly mutilated that the person who discovered her body — someone who knew the 15-year-old — could not identify the teen. Pieces of the porcelain from the toilet lid were still embedded in her flesh, cops said.
Jose Reyes, 17, was also convicted in the murder.
After the savage attack, Reyes bragged about the killing, KHOU reported in December. He repeatedly admitted to the murder, even as he was in jail awaiting trial.
“I was sick-minded stabbing that (expletive) 60 times. It's all good. It's what the devil asked for,” he wrote in a jail house October letter.
