Man Sentenced To Death For Boy Torture Death

(Palmdale, CA) – A Palmdale man is heading to death row for the torture and murder of his girlfriend’s seven-year-old son. He and Pearl Fernandez were sentenced yesterday, after a judge called their actions “horrendous, inhumane and nothing short of evil.”2553734_1280x720The judge added that it would not be right to call the crimes animalistic, because even animals know how to care for their offspring. Fernandez was sentenced to life in prison without parole after she pleaded guilty to murder and torture.

Prosecutors say Gabriel Fernandez was shot with a BB gun, forced to sleep in a cabinet, beaten with a belt, gagged and bound, and endured more abuse for several months before his 2013 death.
