A pregnant IN high school cheerleader was found slain IN a dumpster - and a football player at her school allegedly confessed he was the unborn child's father, saying he killed her because it was too late for an abortion.
Aaron Trejo was charged as an adult with murder in the killing of Breana Rouhselang, whose body was discovered yesterday. Rouhselang, who was six months pregnant, was found dead Sunday morning near her home in Mishawaka, north of Indianapolis.
Trejo says he was alleged to be the father of the baby.
Breana Rouhselang, a 17-year-old cheerleader, softball player, and junior student at Mishawaka High School, has been identified as the teenage girl whose body was found in a dumpster behind Pasquale Rulli's Restaurant in Mishawaka, Indiana on Sunday, December 9. Aaron Trejo said that after he put Breana's body in the dumpster, he walked to the river and threw Breana's phone and his knife as far out into the river as he could.
Visitation and funeral arrangements for Breana Rouhselang have been set.
A judge ordered that Trejo - who is scheduled to be arraigned in court on Tuesday, December 11 - be held without bond.
Her family called police about 4.30 am Sunday after they 'got the feeling that something wasn't right, ' Arendt said. 'I've known her since she was 6.
Trejo initially told police he contacted Breana for the first time in months to see how she was coping with the pregnancy. Pregnant Woman Strangled to Death After She Objects to a Co-Passenger Smoking in Jallianwala Bagh Express Traveling to Bihar.
