    The second witness was Alison Segal, a nurse at the Antelope Valley Hospital. She said she was taken aback by Gabriel's severe injuries all over his body when he was brought to the hospital on May 22, 2013.

    "I will never forget that case," she said.

    During the murder trial, she had described the wounds - old and new - that she found on his tiny, cold body.

    No. Next week the defense will have a chance to speak about why they believe Isuaro should not receive the death penalty. I think it will be over by the end of next week.

    Unhappy

    Co-worker calls killer of Gabriel Fernandez, 8, ‘extremely kind, sensitive and careful’

    http://www.dailynews.com/2017/12/04/...e-and-careful/

    LOS ANGELES - Onetime co-workers of a Palmdale man convicted of the torture-murder of his girlfriend's 8-year-old son testified today that the man they knew was compassionate, kind and worth saving rather than condemned to death.

    Yea, right!!! He sure showed his compassion and kindness to Gabriel!!!

    So - since the Defense is presenting witnesses, I take it won't be long for closing, jury instructions and then deliberations!

    Due to the horrible fires in So Cal, the court will be dark today (no hearing). Closing arguments will start Monday 12/11/17. We're almost there!

    The fires are devastating. A state of emergency has been declared. Several new fires have broken out. It's heartbreaking to watch.

    A prosecutor told jurors Monday that the death penalty was the “only appropriate and just punishment” for a Palmdale man convicted of the torture-murder of his girlfriend’s 8-year-old son, while a defense attorney pleaded for mercy and warned the panel about dehumanizing his client.

    “There is nothing worse in our society than a grown man murdering and torturing an innocent little boy,” Hatami told the panel.

    Then he set a large photo of Gabriel, with a small smile on his face, on an easel in front of the jury box.

    Warning!! Graphic!! But sadly true.

    Hatami imagined the “helplessness and hopelessness” Gabriel must have felt, reminding jurors of testimony that the boy was forced to sleep in a small wooden cabinet with his hands tied behind his back and his ankles handcuffed.

    “Stuffed in that box … cold, afraid, lonely, hungry, probably hard to breathe,” the prosecutor said. The boy “defecated and urinated in that box” and “even was force-fed his own vomit. The defendant broke Gabriel’s spirit.”

    Warning again. Sorry guys.

    The prosecutor recalled all the abuse Gabriel suffered, reminding jurors “his emaciated little body had nine metal BBs in it … a lacerated liver, a fractured skull, whip marks on his back … unimaginable pain and suffering at the hands of the defendant.

    After silently showing two minutes of photos of Gabriel in happier times, Hatami closed with an empty screen.

    “This, ladies and gentlemen, is what’s left of Gabriel … he’ll never graduate from elementary school or junior high or high school …. he’ll never know the feeling of a first crush … or be a father,” Hatami said. “Show the defendant the exact same mercy he showed Gabriel. Remember, we are not asking for revenge, we are asking for justice.”

    It appears there will be no verdict today. I will be away from my computer all day tomorrow. I'll try to find out what I can on my phone and post here if I'm able.
