Federal authorities have filed a criminal complaint against Cecily Aguilar in connection with the disappearance of U.S. Army Specialist Vanessa Guillen.
The criminal complaint charges Aguilar faces include one count to tamper with evidence. According to the complaint, U.S. Army Specialist Aaron Robinson told Aguilar that he had killed a female soldier by hitting her in the head with a hammer. He also admitted that he had moved the body off Ft. Hood to a remote site.
Robinsons enlisted the help of Aguilar in disposing of the dead soldiers’ body.
The complaint also alleges that at a later time Aguilar recognized the deceased, whom she helped Robinson mutilate and dispose of, as Vanessa Guillen.
If convicted, Aguilar faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. She remains in custody at this time and is expected to make her initial appearance in federal court in Waco, Texas early this week.
Robinson took his own life last week, when confronted by the police.
