Nearly one year after Army Specialist Vanessa Guillen's body was found, the surviving suspect in her disappearance and murder is expected back in court.

Cecily Aguilar faces one county of conspiracy to tamper with evidence and two substantive counts of tampering with evidence.

Aguilar's defense team filed a motion to toss out her confession claiming authorities violated her constitutional rights, the motion was denied on Wednesday, June 16.

A protest is scheduled outside of the Waco Federal Courthouse this afternoon, where demonstrators are calling for Aguilar to remain in jail.

The Judge granted as much time both the prosecutor and defense needed to finalize evidence for their case. The prosecutor stated they are almost complete with their investigation and would like the trial back on the docket soon.
