    @Curious Me - I believe you are in California - but I know not in the Bakersfield area where this trial is taking place - maybe.
    He's been in court from 8/11 to 8/13, Friday off (as most California do) & then back on Monday & today. Sounds like a trial to me....
    Can you find anything in California regarding this case?

    TIA! if you can! [​IMG]

    Well shizzle.... the Kern County Sheriff's jail site is down for me this morning. So I'll go ahead and "assume" this "trial" or whatever it is - is still ongoing. I'll check later in the day - and hopefully the site will be back up! :)
    If anyone can access the Kern County "court site" instead of the jail - it would be appreciated if there is info on "what" is going on with this case! TIA!

    Sounds to me that he is having his trial. Again they skip Friday - as courts in California are closed on Fridays.

    I guess no one is following this thread.... well except for misgrn & Luckyzmom

    Jury hears opening statements in murder trial of man accused of killing girlfriend’s 2-year-old son | KGET 17

    "Kaleb Kessinger, 22, and his former girlfriend, Ayled Chavez, were arrested in April 2018 on suspicion of killing Chavez’s son, Ramon Angel Reyes-Chavez, and burying his body in the Kern River Canyon. Chavez accepted a plea deal and agreed to testify at Kessinger’s trial.

    Kessinger quietly sat facing the front of the courtroom throughout Tuesday’s roughly 4 1/2-hour hearing. He wore a blue dress shirt with a blue- and-white-striped tie, gray suit and glasses.

    Prosecutor Courtney Lewis told the jury during her opening statement the only verdict supported by the evidence is to find Kessinger guilty of all charges including first-degree murder. She said Kessinger was left in charge of the child while Chavez was out, and when Chavez returned the boy had multiple injuries to his face and head.

    Kessinger refused to take Ramon to a hospital until Chavez, 21, agreed to lie about what happened, Lewis said. They finally started driving to Kern Medical, but the boy died on the way. They returned home, and later drove to Democrat Hot Springs, where the child was buried."

    ".... (Police) processed the scene at the defendant’s house,” Lewis said. “And there they found DNA evidence that would be consistent with the severe beating that Ramon received.”

    That evidence included blood on a pillow and elsewhere, and soil on clothing that Ramon wore, she said.

    Kessinger’s attorney, David A. Torres, painted Chavez as an unreliable witness who has admitted to repeatedly lying to police and others. During his opening statement, Torres said Chavez gave five different accounts to investigators about what happened the night of Ramon’s death, and didn’t lead police to his body until the child had spent 30 hours in the ground." ....

    I was going to post more of it but my phone isn't cooperating. Sorry!

    It did say the trial is expected to last 4 weeks.

    That article is 5 days old but when I searched previously no new articles came up. Hopefully they will post an update again.
