Texas Teen On Trial After Gouging Out Girl’s Eyes Before Killing Her In Satanic Ritual

A Texas teen is on trial after allegedly beating, mutilating and gauging a classmate’s eyes before killing her in a satanic ritual this past February. Jose Reyes, 18, faces a life sentence for the death of Coriann Cervantes, 15, who he attended school with at Clear Path Alternative School in League City. His trial began on Monday with gruesome and graphic testimony being shared before the court. According to reports, Reyes and Cervantes went to an abandoned apartment in Houston after a night of drinking and marijuana use to engage in sexual activity. Reyes friend, Victor Alias, 16, was also there. Matters turned violent when the two began beating the girl with the porcelain lid of a toilet tank and stabbed her in the face and chest with a screwdriver. They also allegedly carved an upside down cross on her stomach and gauged her eyes when she bit their hands to try to get them to stop assaulting her. Reports additionally state that when Cervantes initially attempted to run away, Reyes beat her in the head with an ashtray and Alias strangled her with a belt. “They discussed the fact that Mr. Reyes had sold his soul to the devil, and if they ended up killing this teenager, that would also allow the 16-year-old to also sell his soul to the devil,” Jordan told reporters. “The teenager screamed, ‘Why are you doing this to me?’ During that time, they stopped her. It became a kidnapping and, ultimately, she was killed.”
