Texas woman, Cecily Aguilar, who helped hide US soldier Vanessa Guillen’s body after she was brutally murdered in 2020 is sentenced to 30 years in prison

A Texas woman has been jailed for 30 years after helping her boyfriend dispose of the body of a US soldier in 2020.

Cecily Aguilar, 24, is the only suspect arrested in the death of Vanessa Guillen, who was killed at Fort Cavazos, formerly known as Fort Hood, near Killeen, Texas.

Authorities say that Guillen was killed by Aguilar’s alleged boyfriend – army specialist Aaron Robinson – after she was a photo of the then 20-year-old on his phone.

Aguilar, who was married, helped Robinson dispose of Guillen’s dismembered body after he bludgeoned her to death, burying her remains in a rural area near the base.

Robinson committed suicide on the day that Guillen’s body was found, as officers were making plans to arrest him for her murder.

Aguilar last year pleaded guilty to a single count of accessory to murder and three counts of making false statements.

She was sentenced to 30 years in prions for her part in the crime, with Guillen’s killing sparking a movement of reporting sexual abuse in the military.

The sentence came after hours of testimony from attorneys, experts and Guillen’s family, and was the maximum punishment Aguilar could receive.

A psychologist called as a witness for the defense testified Monday that Aguilar has reactive attachment disorder, meaning she did not form healthy emotional bonds with her parents or caregivers.

But Doctor Jon Matthew Fabian said the condition wouldn’t keep Aguilar from knowing right or wrong.

Jaime Esparza, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas, said: ‘Our hope is that today´s sentence brings a sense of relief and justice to the Guillén family, who have endured such pain throughout these past few years.

‘We finally have closure in this case,’ added attorney Natalie Khawam, who represents Guillén’s family.
