Venus Iraheta, 18, of Alexandria, pleaded guilty in January to charges of first-degree murder, abduction and gang participation in the death of Damaris Reyes Rivas, 15, last year. She faced a maximum sentence of life in prison on the murder charge, 10 years each on the others.
Iraheta was 17 when she disappeared for a month in January 2017. Her return was captured live in February of that year while her mother was being interviewed by WTOPs news partner, NBC Washington.
By the next morning, she was one of 10 people ultimately charged in connection with the death of Rivas, of Gaithersburg, Maryland. Her body was found near Lake Accotink Park, in Springfield, Virginia, in February 2017; the police said at the time that they believed shed been killed in January.
Iraheta confessed last January to stabbing Rivas several times, saying Rivas was targeted because the group thought she had lured Christian Sosa Rivas, an MS-13 clique leader and Irahetas boyfriend, to his death.
Sosa Rivas body was found in the Potomac River near Dumfries earlier that month. Six people were arrested in his death.
In a statement and an interview with WTOP in January, Fairfax County Commonwealths Attorney Ray Morrogh laid out the details of the murder:
Reyes Rivas had run away from home; her mother reported her missing Dec. 10, 2016. On Jan. 8, 2017, one of the other defendants, Jose Castillo Rivas, whom prosecutors said Reyes Rivas knew, picked her up and brought her to Lake Accotink Park, in Springfield, Virginia.

” They just want a better life. “
18 year old killer is a teen, but the 15 year old is just a girl
18 is an adult in the eyes of the law, not a teenager.
And 40 years isn’t long enough
Just turn her over to the victim’s family.
[ They just want a better life. ]
She’s just doing the jobs Americans refuse to do. /W
She did it out of love. /Jeb!
yeah, they’re not animals.
just a normal MS-13 “clique” leader. Is Clique the new word for gang?
way too many of these creatures in our country. It’s a shame.
They are just like out grandparents...
“Act of love”
“Family values don’t stop at the Rio Grande”
At the most, 2.
” They are just like our grandparents...”
Not exactly sure where you’re coming from, but in any case your statement is wrong.
Until very recently almost all of our grandparents were legal Americans citizens or at least legal residents. They were Not illegal aliens and certainly Not the gang bangers the Obama Dimocrat Party has allowed and encourages to enter the country.
As a matter of fact, they are nothing at all like our grandparents.
Our grandparents came here legally, were sent back if they committed crimes or had a criminal record, and were entirely self supporting as far as regards the taxpayer.
Its Sarcasm... Good Old Chuckie Schumer claimed todays illegals are just like our grandparents...
Seems like it doesnt it.
no. Been around for a few decades in my experience. Blacks have used “set.” Hispanics Clique” You have heard of kids in school separating into clicks? I heard that a long time ago.
