A Palmdale couple were charged today with capital murder in the beating of the woman’s 8-year-old son, who died last week. The DA’s office will decide later whether to seek the death penalty against 29-year-old Pearl Fernandez and 32-year-old Isauro Aguirre.
Monday, May 27th the protesters claimed LA County officials did nothing to head off escalating violence that ended with the death of the boy on Friday. Teachers, including Jennifer Garcia, said their warnings were ignored.
Robert Fernandez says that when he brought evidence of abuse to a sheriff’s deputy, the deputy threatened his family.
The murder charge includes the special circumstance allegation of murder during the commission of torture.
