Police give new details about recent violent Pasco murder

Posted: Updated:

Police release new details and charges are unfolding from the prosecutor's office, nearly a week after the violent death of a Pasco woman.

Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney Shawn Sant accuses Aaron Velasco of second degree murder for killing his sister, but without premeditation.

He says the murder weapon is a sharp metal object, but won't officially say if it's a knife.

Officers say they found 22-year-old Magdalena Velasco Garcia dead in front of a neighbor's home Thursday afternoon on Glendive Court. She had fatal wounds to the face and head.

Police are still searching for a motive and say although they are calling it second degree, domestic violence murder now, it could change as they learn more.

We're told there were three children total living in the house with their parents. An arraignment is schedule for Aaron Velsasco on June 21st.
