A man from New Jersey who confessed that his 11-year-old neighbor had raped and stabbed to death, was facing the furious family of the victim when he was sentenced to life imprisonment on Friday.

Andreas Erazo pleaded guilty in February, days before he was put on trial for Abbeen Smith's murder in 2017 in Keansburg, Monmouth County.

Smith & # 39; s body was found on a roof near the apartment building where she and 20-year-old Erazo lived. Erazo initially claimed that he had killed the girl in the neck because he thought she was an intruder.

During the emotionally charged sentence on Friday, Abbiegail's mother, Carol Bennett, rushed out to her daughter's killer in her searing victim impact.

When he directly addressed the convicted murderer, Bennett said, "Fire in hell for eternity for raping and killing my dear daughter," reported Asbury Park Press.

Erazo showed no emotion when Bennett and her sister spoke in court. He got the chance to speak, but refused.

Bennett described the defendant as & # 39; demonic & # 39; and argued that no punishment would suffice for him.

& # 39; Even torture and death would not do justice & # 39 ;, she continued. & # 39; I am disgusted by you. Since you took the life of my baby, you have shown no regrets and this only says how bad you are. & # 39;

Bennett, flanked by her sister, Cecille Bennett-Downy, later founded reporters outside the courthouse, and drew attention to Erazo's impassioned behavior during the hearing.

& # 39; He had nothing to say for what he had done to my daughter, & # 39; said Bennett. & # 39; She didn't deserve this kind of death … but I just leave Andreas Erazo in the hands of God, because Abbie is now with God while he will certainly be with the devil, & # 39; reported ABC 7 NY.

Smith was reported missing on the evening of July 12, 2017. The police found her body wrapped up 15 hours later in a comforter on a rear roof outside the window of her then 18-year-old neighbor, Erazo.

The father of the fifth school, Kenroy Smith, lives in Jamaica, where he was deported in 2001 after a marijuana arrest.

He and Abbiegail's older sister, Kennish Smith, did not receive a visa to attend the girl's funeral, despite Kenroy's public plea against President Donald Trump.
