A perverted pastor who seduced a 12-year-old girl and persuaded her to be his lover for two years in a rural Mexican community without anybody complaining flew into a rage and murdered her when he discovered she was having an affair with somebody else.
Christian pastor Jose Baltazar Hernandez Molina, aged 31, had moved to the town of Maclovio Rojas, in the north-western Mexican state of Baja California, after being deported as an illegal alien from the United States.
He was able to become pastor of the local church and built up the congregation where he first met 12-year-old Adriana Sanchez Beltran, who he seduced and started a relationship with. But after a two-year relationship they had argued about the fact that he would not allow her to move into his home, after which she told him she was going to find somebody else.
But when she started an affair with a teenage boy, also underage, and the priest found out about it. He tracked her down in his pick-up truck and dragged her into the vehicle where he attacked her and then killed her by breaking her neck. A post-mortem found that the young girl's body was entirely covered with bruises where he had beaten her before finally killing her.
Yet when arrested he claimed it was an accident and he had not meant to hurt her.
Mexican Deputy Against Organised Crime, Miguel Angel Guerrero, said that the priest had admitted killing her in a jealous rage and now felt sorry about what happened.
He said: "He has been charged with murder and rape because the girl was underage. We are also investigating who else knew about his relationship and why they did nothing."
If convicted, the priest faces up to 50 years in jail.
