Teen couple charged in death of infant son

Two teenage parents from Zion have been charged in the beating death of their 5-month-old son.

17-year-old Victor Javier Salinas-Corona is charged with the infant’s murder.  He’s jailed in lieu of two million dollars bail.

His girlfriend, 19-year-old Aurora Escamilla, was released on $100,000 bail. She is charged with endangering the life of a child.

The couple’s infant was found at a home in the 2600 block of Horeb Avenue just before 4 a.m. on Thursday after someone called 911 because the boy was not breathing, according to a release from Zion police.

He was taken to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan where he was pronounced dead.

Police provided no details about what might have led to the slaying.

    I hope that someone finds the heart and courage to explain to these "children" that they should NEVER be in charge of another human's life. I hope the baby is at peace in God's embrace

    The parents nedd help but theyshould also be punished. The mother needs to do some time and a lot counselling to teach her the basics of parenting. The father also needs to do some time in a juvenile facility and undergo a lot counselling too. It may not be too late for them.

      Why is the immigration status important? A life of a child was taken wether they were legal in the country or not. Racist

        Immigration status has nothing to do with race.

      A life wasn’t “lost”. The baby was “killed” by at least one of the parents. There’s a big difference!

    I feel sorry for the infant. BUT! If these 2 killers – I don't care HOW old they are, had sex, made a baby – then – they are 'smart' enough to take care of it – or go to their parents for help. NOT TO KILL IT! Put them BOTH to death – no question – what does age have to do with being a killer??? No sympathy…kill or put in a cell -23 out of 24 hours a day – no TV – just their evil minds – -Maybe they'll kill themselves -GOOD!

    My opinion, they should be put in a cell with glass walls and pictures of that beautiful baby they decided was too much for them. Let them stare at those for the rest of their lives. Age means nothing when u take a life especially an innocent baby, he did not ask to be brought into this world. Kids trying to be adults. Well we see how that turns out. So sad…. RIP baby boy

    Glass cell with pictures of that poor baby in between so they can look at the life they took. Age has nothing to do with taking a life, especially the life of a beautiful innocent child, he did not ask to be here. Kids trying to play adults, well we see how that ended. RIP baby boy…

      If these people were emotionally moved by something like that, well their baby would not be dead.
