This is horrifying and I am shocked that a little girl lost her life as a result. Is there anyway for a parent to know their child thinks they sold their soul to the devil? Today is a good day to intrude a tad and find out what is going on with your kids. I don’t have answers, just suggesting we know everything we can about our kids.

17-year-old Jose E. Reyes was arrested on Sunday in the NASA-area slaying of a a 15-year-old girl earlier this month. 

Assistant Harris County District Attorney John Jordan says the teen along with his 16-year-old accomplice, arrested Monday, were trying to make a deal with the devil.

"They discussed the fact that Mr. Reyes had sold his soul to the devil," Jordan said. "And if they ended up killing this teenager, it would also allow the 16-year-old to also sell his soul to the devil."

Both teens have been charged with capital murder in the Feb. 5 death of Corriann Cervantes.

Reyes is currently in the Harris County jail with no bail. The 16-year-old, who has not been identified because of his age, is behind bars in the Harris County Juvenile courthouse.
