The arrival at the court of Derek Rosa, the 13-year-old teenager arrested for the murder of his mother, caused excitement and the press waited for the moment to capture images and impressions.
47 days after the crime, on Tuesday, November 28, 2023, Rosa appeared in court for the first time since he was arrested for the high-profile case in October.
Noticias Telemundo described in his review that Derek Rosa’s physical changes are starting to be noticed. “A shy moustache” is written on his face.
“At least at first glance,” they said, “he seemed calm.” In the courtroom he seemed relaxed. The press reported that the boy looked around the room. “His father, José, blew him a kiss; “His grandmother was crying,” the New York Post described.

Tried it as an adult
He committed the murder on October 12. Because he took the life of his mother, whom he left in bed, he will be judged as an adult. This was decided by a grand jury.
The Hialeah juvenile has been charged with first-degree murder.
Next to the bed where Irina García lay in a cradle, lay her sister. At the time of that tragedy, the baby was 14 days old.
Since October, he has been spending his days in an adult detention center called Metro West in Miami.
The attorney for the teen and his family, Dayliseth Rielo, is scheduled to present evidence on Friday, December 1, as to why Metro West is not a place for Derek Rosa. The judge sent him to that center the last week of October.

They inspected the house
At his home, on the night of October 12, 2023, Derek attacked Irina García with a knife. He then called 911. He told the operator that he had sent photos of the scene to his friends.
The events took place at the Amelia Oaks complex in Hialeah. According to journalist Rogelio Mora-Tagle, on Thursday, November 30, the judge allowed an inspection of the house where Irina García was murdered.
The defense entered the apartment and stayed for about three hours. “A lawyer, a forensic expert and a photographer come in.” The police will guard the suburbs. The Public Prosecution Service does not agree with what the judge has allowed.

Why did he kill his mother?
The 13-year-old teen’s attorney told Telemundo she cannot reveal what she discussed with her client. Also, do not answer questions about your mental state.
The question many are asking: why did Derek kill his mother? still no response.
When speaking to 911, around 11:30 PM on October 12, Derek said, “Ma’am, she (his mother) is dead. “I have other relatives who can take care of my sister.”
Dereck Rosa: Ma’am, I took pictures and said to my friend: was that wrong?
Operator: Who did you tell?
Dereck Rosa: To my friend.
When asked whether he should wait for the police, the boy answers: “I’m fine, I’m just very sad, very sad.” (JO)
