Laken Riley’s Accused Killer Indicted on Kidnapping, Rape, Murder

The illegal alien accused of murdering 22-year-old nursing student Laken Riley this year has been indicted on ten counts, including murder, kidnapping, and assault with intent to rape.

On Wednesday, a grand jury in Athens, Georgia, indicted 26-year-old illegal alien Jose Antonio Ibarra of Venezuela on murder charges for the death of Laken Riley, who was found brutally beaten to death on the University of Georgia (UGA) campus on Feb. 22.

In addition to felony murder, Ibarra has also been indicted for aggravated battery, aggravated assault with intent to rape, kidnapping with bodily injury, obstructing a person making a 911 phone call, and tampering with evidence.

The indictment alleges that on Feb. 22, when Riley went for a morning jog, Ibarra kidnapped her after preventing her from making a 911 call. Then, Ibarra allegedly attempted to rape Riley before brutally strangling her and beating her until she was dead.

Riley’s body was found the same day in a wooded area on the UGA campus.

New details in the indictment claim that on the day Ibarra allegedly murdered Riley, he spied on a different UGA student by looking through their apartment window. He has also been indicted on a peeping tom offense as a result.

Ibarra’s indictment comes as Riley’s murder has sparked nationwide outrage over unfettered illegal immigration to the United States on President Joe Biden’s watch.

As Breitbart News reported, according to his case file, Ibarra was first encountered at the U.S.-Mexico border near El Paso, Texas, on September 8, 2022. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials cited “detention capacity” as the reason Ibarra was awarded parole and released into the U.S. interior despite there having been available detention space.

On July 19, 2023, Ibarra reported to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials in New York City for a biometric appointment where he was fingerprinted. The results of those fingerprints showed that Ibarra had a prior criminal history, his case file states.

On September 14, 2023, Ibarra was arrested for acting in a manner that could injure a child. Despite the charge, Ibarra was not prosecuted, and the arrest was expunged.

Two months later, in November 2023, Ibarra applied for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). On December 9, 2023, Ibarra’s work permit application was approved.

Less than three months after securing the work permit, Ibarra was charged with Riley’s murder. Ibarra remains in the Clarke County Jail without bail and will be arraigned at a later date.
