The Nebraska Parole Board denied parole for a woman serving 6-14 years for being an accessory to the murder of a mother and a 5-year-old boy.

In 2015, Gabriella Guevara was sentenced after she was caught on surveillance helping her boyfriend Roberto Martinez-Marinero dump his mother's body.

Prosecutors say she then dropped her children off at her parents house, and sat by while Roberto put his half brother Angel in a La Vista Dumpster and threw his 5-year-old half brother Josue into the Elkhorn River. 

"Six to 14 years is nothing compared to the damage she did to my aunt, who will never come back. She will never get a second chance, Josue either," Martinez-Marinero's cousin Veronica Rosa said. "Hopefully she completes the full sentence, even that, that wouldn't be enough to make up for the damage she did to us." 

The board unanimously voted to deny parole and Guevara will have another review in a year.  When she is released she will be deported to Mexico.
