Suspect in Vanessa Guillen case pleads guilty to multiple federal charges

A Texas woman pled guilty for her involvement in the 2020 death of Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen.

In the Waco Federal Courthouse, Cecily Aguilar pled guilty to a charge of accessory after the fact and three counts of making false statements.

Prosecutors said Aguilar's boyfriend, Aaron Robinson, a 20-year-old soldier at Fort Hood, brutally murdered Vanessa Guillen with a hammer on post. He then worked with Aguilar to dispose of Guillen's remains on the banks of the Leon River.

Aguilar could be sentenced to 30 years in prison.
