Chilling crime scene photos have been released of the moments a Florida honor roll student was seen standing over his sleeping mother’s bed before she was stabbed to death.
The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office released the images from babycam footage in the case of Derek Rosa, a 13-year-old boy from Hialeah, who is facing a murder charge in the Oct. 12 killing of his mother.
“Several photos released Monday show the knife used to kill 39-year-old Irina Garcia, covered in blood. Two other photos captured from a nearby baby monitor show Garcia holding her newborn daughter, and then her son, Derek Rosa, later standing over her the night of the killing,” NBC Miami affiliate WTVJreported. “Another photo shows Rosa posing with what appears to be blood on his hand. It’s reportedly the same photo Rosa allegedly sent to a friend after the killing.”
