Indiana high school football player confessed to killing pregnant cheerleader, affidavit says

Aaron Trejo, a member of the Mishawaka High School football team, was charged Monday with murder and feticide in the death of Breana Rouhselang on Saturday. Aaron Trejo, 16, was charged as an adult with murder in the Sunday killing of Breana Rouhselang and the fetus.

"An autopsy confirmed that Breana Rouhselang died from multiple stab wounds, that her scarf had been tied so tightly that strangulation was occurring before Breana died, and that she was pregnant", Detective Mullins said.

Neighbors told local media that they saw authorities recover Rouhselang's body from a dumpster near her home around 11 a.m. (1600 GMT) on Sunday.

The cheerleader is said to have been six months pregnant when her body was found in a restaurant dumpster just one street from where she lived with her mum.

In charging documents obtained by Fox News on Monday, Trejo - in an interview with South Bend Detective Gery Mullins - revealed he was "aware of Breana's pregnancy and that he was supposed to be the father of the baby".

Rouhselang was a manager of the Mishawaka High School football team.

A 16-year-old teen has been arrested in the killing of a 17-year-old pregnant schoolmate whose body was found in an IL restaurant dumpster. Officers found more blood and soon found Rouhselang's body in a nearby dumpster in back of a restaurant near the house, with a plastic trash bag over her head and upper body.

Her mother called police who discovered the teen's glasses and a stocking cap covered in blood, in the alley, court documents said.

Lt. Alex Arendt, from the St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit, told The South Bend Tribune that Rouhselang and Trejo had some sort of a relationship - but the exact details of it are still under investigation. He told Rouhselang's mother that she never showed up for a planned meeting. "I took her life".

In his confession, he told authorities he made a decision to use a knife, which he brought from his home, "because he thought it would kill Breana quickly", according to court papers.

"I took action.I took her life", Trejo allegedly told police, the affidavit states.

Trejo told investigators he had been planning the killing for about a week and had not told anyone.

The victim's stepmother said Rouhselang was 6 months pregnant at the time of her death.

"They do know each other through the high school".

"There will be grief counselors available at Mishawaka High School first thing in the morning and throughout the day", the statement reads.

16-year-old Aaron Trejo has since been charged with her murdr.
