‘Satanic Ritual’ Murder in Texas

Two Texas teenagers have been charged in the brutal murder of a girl they’ve known since middle school, in a crime that authorities say has the hallmarks of a satanic ritual. The body of 15-year-old Corriann Cervantes was found Saturday mutilated and with a cross carved into her stomach. Police say that one of the boys, a 17 year old, thought he had sold his soul to the devil, while the other, a 16 year old, said he thought that by killing the girl he could also sell his soul. The boys allegedly beat the girl with an ashtray and the lid of a toilet tank, stabbed her in the face with a screwdriver, and sexually assaulted her with a rod from window blinds.
