Two teenagers from Clear Lake, Tex. are in custody after allegedly murdering a 15-year-old girl in what prosecutors described as a satanic ritual.

Jose Reyes, 17, and an unnamed 16-year-old accomplice lured Corriann Cervantes, 15, to a vacant apartment last Wednesday where they allegedly sexually assaulted her and beat her death, reports a local NBC affiliate. Authorities said Reyes and his accomplice carved an inverted cross on her stomach. A local prosecutor claimed Reyes admitted that he had “sold his soul to the devil.”

Cervantes was beaten with an ashtray and a toilet lid and was apparently strangled, prosecutors said. Her body was found by a passerby early Saturday in the abandoned apartment.

Neither suspect is eligible for the death penalty because of their ages. Reyes could face a lifetime prison sentence, and his alleged accomplice, whose name has not been released because he is a juvenile, could face up to 40 years in prison.

The sentence sounds like more of a life saving sentence for the perpetrator than a punishing sentence!  Apparently the publicized purpose of punishment is no longer effective because the word isn't getting out EFFECTIVELY!  This criminal act is beyond sick.  The sentence should be allowed once the families of the perpetrators finance the first 5 years cost of incarceration and the kiddos make it through 2 days in a cage with wolves.

I did a lot of stupid things in high school but I don't recall carving crucifixes on my fellow classmates.
