A 2-year-old boy watched his mother get shot to death by MS-13 gang members in a wooded section of Central Islip last year before one of them turned the gun on the crying toddler, killing him, according to federal court papers.
The mother, Vanessa Argueta, 19, had taken her young son, Diego Torres, with her on what she thought was a dinner date last February because she didn't have a baby-sitter, the court papers said.
Among those who took part in the execution-style killings, according to the federal documents, was the mother's former boyfriend.
The account of the killings is contained in recently unsealed court papers, implicating MS-13 member Adalberto Guzman, 17 at the time, as one of the three people involved in the killings of the mother and son, according to federal prosecutors.
The suspects tried to persuade Argueta to leave her son at home, knowing they had no intention of taking her to dinner, "but she didn't have anyone to watch her son," according to the court papers.

Viva Los Pepes!
they’re so mean they likely will become the gang leaders there in short order
This should have all taken place in Mexico. Let’s build an Israeli-style fence across the border and end this nightmare.
Too bad we make no effort to shut them out of our southern border...
Sad but true.
The original members were from El Salvador. Not sure if it’s changed much.
MS-13 did not originate from Mexico...
They are Salvadorian.
The gang originated in Los Angeles, actually...
And they come across from Mexico...regardless of where they claim to be from.
Mexico tries to control their borders, but they demand that we not control ours. (string of expletives deleted)
Now gov will spend millions on why he should not be put to death
Ex post facto family planning.
