Two alleged MS-13 gang members laughed and waved in court as they stood accused of kidnapping and torturing a teenage girl and killing a woman in a Satanic ritual after she insulted their demon god.

Group leader Miguel Alvarez-Flores, 22, - also known as “Diabolico” - and Diego Hernandez-Rivera, 18, were arrested this week and charged with kidnapping a 14-year-old girl and murdering a second victim, who was found shot to death at the side of  road.

The 14-year-old told cops she ran away from school and ended up being held against her will at two apartments in Houston, Texas, for 18 days where she was drugged, tortured and raped by another gang member.

The court heard how at one point during the ordeal Alvarez-Flores tattooed an image of the grim reaper on the girl’s lower leg.

The second victim - an unidentified woman known only as “Genesis” - was also being held against her will at the apartment, according to the teen.
