In the Waco Federal Courthouse, Cecily Aguilar pled guilty to a charge of accessory after the fact and three counts of making false statements.
Prosecutors said Aguilar's boyfriend, Aaron Robinson, a 20-year-old soldier at Fort Hood, brutally murdered Vanessa Guillen with a hammer on post. He then worked with Aguilar to dispose of Guillen's remains on the banks of the Leon River.
