ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Alberto Reyes, the man who pleaded guilty in the deaths of his girlfriend and her son has now also pleaded guilty in a federal case involving counterfeit documentation and illegal re-entry into the country.

U.S. Attorney James Kennedy said that Reyes, 27, entered a guilty plea on Monday for charges of possession of a counterfeit social security card and alien registration card as well as illegal re-entry after deportation. 


The charges could bring Reyes 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Reyes is already facing 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of first-degree manslaughter in the deaths of his girlfriend Selena Hidalgo-Calderon and her 14-month-old son, Owen. Selena and Owen had disappeared in May 2018 from a Sodus farm. Selena was found dead a week later while Owen's were found in October.

Reyes, a Mexican citizen, had twice before been deported from the United States, and his illegal re-entry as well as fraudulent alien registration card and social security card were discovered after his arrest in the Hidalgo-Calderon case.
