Illegal Alien MS-13 Suspect Pleads Guilty to Raping and Murdering Teenage Girl

The headline from the local CBS-TV affiliate:

Man pleads guilty to murder, abduction
and rape of Muslim teen during Ramadan

So they lead with the fact that the victim was a Muslim, and she was killed during Ramadan, and her killer is just a “man” in the headline.

STERLING, Va. — The man charged with killing a Muslim teen during Ramadan last year pleaded guilty to murder, abduction and rape of Nabra Hassanen.
On June 18, 2017, the 17-year-old girl from Reston, Virginia was sexually assaulted and killed in Sterling as she and her friends walked to the ADAMS Center mosque in the early morning hours.
Darwin Martinez Torres of Sterling is charged with capital murder which carries the possibility of the death penalty.
Torres, an undocumented immigrant from El Salvador, was 22 at the time.

Yeah, you can’t make that the headline. It would be racist or something. You might even be tempted to vote Republican, considering what was previously reported in the Washington Post:

Prosecutors plan to introduce evidence during a capital murder trial that the man accused of the high-profile killing of a Muslim teen in Virginia last year had been suspected of being a member of the violent MS-13 street gang, according to recent court filings.
Darwin Martinez Torres’s brother-in-law “believed” the 23-year-old was an MS-13 associate as a juvenile in the years before authorities said he abducted, sexually assaulted and brutally killed 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen, according to the filings. . . .
News of a possible MS-13 angle in a case that grabbed national attention could have reverberations beyond the trial, since President Trump and his allies have highlighted violence committed by gang members and undocumented immigrants to advocate for hard-line immigration policies. . . .
Hassanen, of Reston, Va., was attacked as she and friends walked back to their Sterling mosque, following a pre-dawn meal during Ramadan in June 2017. Police said Torres approached the group in his car and got into an altercation with one of them, before getting out and chasing them with a baseball bat.
Torres eventually caught Hassanen and hit her with the bat, police said. He then abducted her, sexually assaulted her, killed her and dumped her body in a pond near his Sterling apartment, police said. . . .
The week before Hassanen was killed, a woman went to an emergency room at a Loudoun County hospital and reported that Torres had punched, choked and sexually assaulted her and was a member of MS-13, according to two people familiar with her account.

“They’re not sending their best,” as someone said, but this is just more of the kind of “violence against women” feminists will ignore.
