AG Expects Diaz Trial To Move Forward Following Ruling

AG Expects Diaz Trial To Move Forward Following Ruling
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The South Dakota Supreme Court says the confession of a teenage murder suspect should be allowed during her trial for the 2009 murder of 16-year-old Jasmine Guevara.

On Thursday, four of the five Supreme Court justices say the confession of Maricela Diaz should be allowed in court because they believe she understood her rights.

Diaz was 15 years old when she confessed to investigators about her role in Guevara's murder.

Her Miranda rights were read in both English and Spanish.

"I've had an opportunity to talk to Jasmine Guevara's family and I think we're pleased that the case can now move forward. We anticipate the setting of a jury trial for here in Sioux Falls in the very near future and that there can be some closure in this case," South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley said.

Diaz's boyfriend, Alexander Salgado, pleaded guilty in 2010 and is serving a life sentence for his role in the murder.
