Second teen makes plea agreement in Woodland pig-killing case

WOODLAND — A second teen has admitted to charges stemming from the theft and slaughter of a Woodland High School student’s Future Farmers of America pig, according to the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office.

The 17-year-old Woodland boy pleaded no contest last week to felony charges of grand theft and conspiracy to destroy property, as well as a misdemeanor count of second-degree burglary, Chief Deputy District Attorney Jonathan Raven said Thursday. Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 16.

His accomplice, also 17, pleaded no contest this summer to felony animal cruelty and grand theft charges. His sentence comprised a combination of detention, restitution and counseling, Raven said.

Both teens were arrested in the days after FFA student Marika Ocegueda discovered her pig, Edwin, had been taken from a school-owned farm facility north of Woodland sometime during the night of June 1. All that was left was a trail of blood.

The pig’s butchered remains were found three days later along Cache Creek, about two miles west of the farm facility, authorities said. The motive for the crime was never revealed.

Ocegueda, a senior at Woodland High, went on to raise two more pigs in time for the Yolo County Fair’s FFA livestock show and auction in August.
