The camera suddenly shakes frantically as the girls scream. When the film begins again, a bloody scene unfolds.

"Jacqueline, please wake up," Ms Obdulia says while trying to shake 14-year-old Jacqueline Sanchez Estrada.

"I f**king killed my sister, OK? I know I'm going to jail for life. I understand that. I don't f**king care, though. I'm sorry, baby. I'm gonna hold it down."

Ms Sanchez Estrada, meanwhile, was sitting in the back of the car without a seat belt and was killed when she was ejected from the vehicle.
