A 16-year-old high school football player has been charged as an adult for killing 17-year-old pregnant cheerleader. Aaron Trejo from Mishawaka, Indiana, was arrested Sunday for killing Breana Rouhseland and disposing of her body in a dumpster behind a restaurant. Aaron was the father of the unborn child and killed Breana because it was too late for an abortion.
Breana’s body was discovered by authorities on Sunday morning in a dumpster behind Pasquale Rulli Pizza, a block from where she lives. Breana was six months pregnant.
According to the arrest affidavit obtained by People, Breana left her home at 11 P.M. to speak to her baby’s father, Aaron. The police searched the surrounding areas and found what they believed were her glasses and blood, which led the police to her body.
According to the arrest affidavit, Aaron confessed to the killing and said he thought about killing Breana for a week. He originally lied and said that Breana never showed up to their planned meet up, but then came clean.
Aaron said the two got into a fight about her pregnancy which resulted in him stabbing Breana in the heart with a knife he brought from home.
Detective Gery Mullins detailed his conversation with Aaron in the charging documents. “I then asked Aaron if the fight was about the pregnancy,” Mullins wrote. “Aaron Trejo quietly said, ‘Yes.’ Aaron then explained that Breana waited too long to tell Aaron about the pregnancy to get an abortion. I asked Aaron what he did about that, and he replied, ‘I took action…I took her life.'”
After he killed Breana and put her body in the dumpster he threw her cell phone in the river.
“This is such a hard tragedy to accept! This loving young lady was so full of life and didn’t deserve this,” Breana’s stepmother Nicole wrote on her funeral GoFundMe page. “Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. No one can ever be prepared for a loss like this.”
