Vanessa Guillen case: A woman who was accused of helping the person who is thought to have killed Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen cut up and get rid of her body pleaded guilty to multiple federal charges on Tuesday, weeks before her trial was set to start.
Cecily Aguilar, who is 24 years old, was charged with 11 federal crimes last year. In U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in Waco, she pleaded guilty to four of them: one count of being an accessory to murder after the fact and three counts of making a false statement or representation.
According to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Texas, Aguilar faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a $1 million fine. Several of Guillen’s family members traveled to Waco to attend the hearing in person.
