SILVER SPRING, Md. -

A 14 year-old Silver Spring boy is being charged as an adult in the death of his 7 month-old sister.

Police say 39 year old Gloria Yanes, who lives in a basement apartment on Lockwood Drive, left her son in charge of her infant daughter when she went to work at 10:30 PM Thursday night.

When she tried to wake seven month old Larissa at 6 am to feed her, she was unresponsive. Someone called paramedics and police.

"Before we arrived, the paramedics had taken the child to Holy Cross Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Doctors say the little girl had injuries they determined were not self-inflicted," Montgomery County Police Captain Paul Starks says.

So they questioned her brother, Johnathan Aguiluc.

"He admitted that he had beaten the little girl which made her cry, so he covered her nose and mouth with his hands," Starks says.

Starks says because the 14 year-old is charged as an adult with first degree murder, investigators don't think the little girl's death was an accident.

Neighbors are stunned. This woman, who lives next door to the family, says she knew Ms. Yanes worked the overnight shift, but she wasn't aware of her childcare arrangements.

"I know her, but I don't know who was watching her baby. I don't know," she said.

No answer at the Yanes home, rocked by a double tragedy.

"It's not just the death of the seven month old little girl," Starks says. "If the allegations are true, she's going to lose her son too, for a time anyway."

Johnathan Aguiluc is being held without bond.

He's due in court Monday at 1 p.m. for a bond hearing.

Were you doing it every single night while mom was at work?  Or just one night here or there?  No 14 year old should be doing that every single night because mom couldn't find a sitter.

What's wrong with a 14 year old watching a baby overnight? I started babysitting when I was 13.. Anyways, that's sad and disturbing on so many levels...

Quoting danijean:

Very sad but honestly who in the heck trusts a 14 year old to watch a baby overnight? Mom needs to be charged with something!

They weren't my siblings, but yes, it was basically every night that I watched them. There was a 4 year old boy who was severely autistic and his sister who was about 6 months at the time. I practically lived there for a year.

I started watching a toddler when I was 13. A couple years later he was diagnosed with diabetes & I had to watch his blood sugar & give him insulin. That's a lot for a 15 year old to handle, but I did it. I usually watched him from 7pm-2am.

13/14 is the age when legally you can start baby sitting. You are so beyond wrong.
As if the poor woman hasn't been through enough? Really?

Quoting Abby.N.Amys.Mom:

That poor baby!  You cannot possibly throw a 14 year old BOY into the responsibilities of caring for a baby and not expect him to properly handle his frustrations.  It's hard enough for an adult, much less a CHILD.  That mother should be charged, not that boy.  He must be beside himself.  Poor guy.

^^ This.

Well, you handled it, but you're also a female.  They mature quicker than boys and I don't know any 14 year old boy who could do that on a regular basis.  That's a hard enough job for an adult - I would know I have a newborn at home.
