As GWU said, your UTG raised needs to be AT LEAST $12, and preferably $14 or $16.
You should either be 4-betting preflop or deciding ahead of time to call/raise every street unless there's an ace on the board. The reasoning behind not 4-betting in this spot is you're hoping to keep pairs that you have crushed in the hand (say TT through QQ).
Regardless, you can't fold this hand at any point on this runout. As GWU said, if villain has AA, so be it.
