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.

But it does mean a 14 year old CAN do it, which I think was her point. This point totally invalidates your point that leaving a baby with a 14 year old is a bad idea. It isn't always a bad idea any more than it is always a good idea. That was her point.

So the way I see it she's right and you're wrong.

*shrug*


Quoting Abby.N.Amys.Mom:

I very much would like to agree with you, but that would make us both wrong, now wouldn't it?

Just because you did it doesn't mean that every 14 year old child is capable of doing it.  Open up your narrow little mind and just consider the possibilities. 


Quoting MistyMoo:

I don't think it had anything to do with sex, really. I have a cousin who is a year older than me and he's always been amazingwith kids, even at the age of 14.



Quoting Abby.N.Amys.Mom:

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.

Quoting MistyMoo:

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.







Quoting Abby.N.Amys.Mom:

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.

Quoting MistyMoo:

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!

I never said every 14 year old could? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was going off of MY personal experience. I'm not narrow minded, as I said I was going off of MY personal experience. I'm aware that everyone is different and I'm aware every situation is totally individualized and people have different breaking points. I wasn't saying everything is one size fits all.

Every night it sounds like it was always up to him.


Quoting TSNDDY:

I watched a women's baby and toddler over night when I was 13/14.

That's awful. And, its truly disgusting that they would charge him as an adult. Why even have the age of consent or legal adult age, if you are able to call anyone you please an adult if something bad happens.

You are thinking like a rational ADULT with a fully functioning mind.  Forget that the 14 year old mind is still immature and learning.  He should never have been forced into that situation.  He was pushed over the limit and couldn't make a rational decision because he is also a CHILD.  You don't leave babies with babies - you leave them with a responsible ADULT.  That's childrearing 101.

Quoting kappalopokis:

A fourteen year old knows that beating an infant is wrong.

Period.

He is not the victim.


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.

Does it.bother anyone else that they don't think it was an accident. I mean it would be bad enough if he.got upset lost his temper and accidentally killed her but they don't think that's what happened. By saying it wasn't an accident says he intentionally killed her and I want to know.why they think that. I think that alone would tell us a lot. Also if it was on purpose I want to hear from him why.

 Agreed.  14 is NOT old enough to deal with a 7 month.  WTF woman???

wow. and that is why kids should not be given responsibilities equal to that of an adult.

I dont think he should have been watching baby but it does say they dont think baby died accidentally

Sorry for jumping to conclusions, but your post made you sound like a sanctimommy like you knew it all.  "Because you did it, all kids can do it."  My apologies.
