Double Murder Conviction Overturned

KSAL StaffMay 15, 2015

The Kansas Supreme Court has reversed the conviction of a 27-year-old man serving a life sentence for suffocating his former girlfriend and their baby after she demanded child support.

The court ruled Friday that Luis Aguirre’s confessions weren’t admissible because he was questioned after invoking his constitutional right to remain silent. Luis Aguirre was convicted in June 2012 of capital murder in the deaths of 18-year-old Tanya Maldonado and the couple’s 13-month-old son, Juan.

A hunter found their bodies in a shallow grave near Ogden in October 2009. A month earlier, Maldonado told a case worker at a Chicago homeless shelter that she was leaving with her son’s father. Aguirre was living in Austin, Texas, at the time but had previously lived in Ogden.
