A local teen says he killed his pregnant girlfriend and their unborn baby.
The heartbreaking case unfolded with surprise Wednesday morning inside a St. Joseph County courthouse. Aaron Trejo told a judge he killed Breana Rouhselang and their baby.
Trejo entered a guilty plea of murder and feticide. He and his lawyer made the surprise announcement at what was scheduled as a status hearing.
The courtroom was packed with people who knew the victim and the accused. The mood in there was somber, just like the weather outside.
People sat quietly on-edge, watching as Trejo walked with shackles to take his seat in front of the judge.
The judge read aloud the agreement Trejo signed, pleading guilty to murder and feticide. Under the agreement, the state won’t file any other charges.
Trejo also agreed to waving his right to appeal a conviction and sentence.
During questioning by Trejo’s attorney, Trejo admitted that he knowingly killed another person and terminated a pregnancy.
He also said he had multiple conversations with Rouhselang before the night of her death that she was pregnant. Trejo said when he met her outside of her house that December night they didn’t talk much, and when he stabbed her, she fell to the ground.
He said he knew she died, and he later determined the baby also died.
While it was not discussed in court today, in the days after Rouhselang’s death, Trejo told police that he put her body in a dumpster behind a restaurant.
Trejo and Rouhselang were classmates at Mishawaka High School. Reacting to today’s guilty plea, District Superintendent Wayne Barker said,
Inside the courtroom today, there were no outbursts, but we did some people crying, including Rouhselang’s parents.
After court adjourned today, we asked family members if they wanted to share their thoughts about Trejo’s guilty plea and they said not at this time. Trejo’s lawyer also told us “no comment” when we asked.
Trejo’s sentencing is in January. 80 years is his maximum sentence.
