Teen accused of killing sister to be tried as juvenile

The 14-year-old Silver Spring boy charged with killing his infant sister will be tried in juvenile court.

Jonathan Aguilac was charged with second degree murder in the death of his 7-month-old sister Larissa Yanes. The court determined Friday he would be tried as a juvenile, said Ramon Korionoff, public affairs director for the Montgomery County State's Attorney's Office.

Aguilac killed his sister while she was under his care the night of Feb. 8 in their apartment on the 11600 block of Lockwood Drive. Their mother, 39-year-old Gloria Yanes, was at work. Aguilac was initially charged as an adult.

During a bond hearing in February, detectives said the teen told police he had beaten his baby sister. He said he put his hand on her nose and mouth because she was crying.

The infant died from suffocation.

Aguilac is currently in jail, Korionoff said.

Body found in Rock Creek

Police found the body of a woman near Rock Creek Parkway early Saturday morning, according to D.C. police.

Her body was discovered before 7 a.m. under the Massachussetts Avenue bridge near the Islamic Center. An unknown resident reported it to police, who pronounced the woman dead at the scene.

Police have not released information on how the woman died or who she was, or whether her death is suspicious.
