    Closing arguments presented in trial of man charged with killing girlfriend’s 2-year-old son | KGET 17

    Kaleb Kessinger brutally beat his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son then buried him in a shallow grave “like an animal” before washing clothes in an attempt to destroy evidence and leading police on a high-speed chase, a Kern prosecutor said.

    Every action by the 22-year-old showed evidence of guilt as he tried to cover up what he’d done, Courtney Lewis told the jury during her closing argument Monday. She asked jurors to return guilty verdicts on all charges, including first-degree murder and assault on a child under 8 resulting in death.

    Kessinger’s attorney, however, said it’s important to take into account the liabilities of some of the witnesses — most importantly, those of Ayled Chavez, the slain boy’s mother. David A. Torres asked the jury to consider whether Chavez’s testimony painting herself as a victim is reliable, or whether she’s a cold and calculating liar who killed her son then blamed Kessinger, her then-boyfriend.

    Chavez accepted a plea deal, was sentenced to two years in prison and agreed to testify at trial. She was the first witness called when the trial began Aug. 18.

    The jury deliberated for about an hour following closing arguments and will resume deliberations Tuesday morning.

    so... can we "assume" he was found guilty - and 9/30 will be his sentencing date?

    Well - that is strange - just got a google alert with the sentencing! :confused: o_O

    Man sentenced in 2018 killing of 2-year-old boy

    Sept. 30, 2020

    A Kern County Superior Court judge sentenced Kaleb Kessinger to 25 years to life in prison Tuesday for the 2018 murder of 2-year-old Ramon Chavez.

    Kessinger will serve concurrent sentences in state prison for the felony convictions of first-degree murder, assault of a child under 8 years old resulting in death and reckless evading of a peace officer. He will also serve a concurrent misdemeanor sentence after being convicted of obstructing/resisting an officer.

    Ramon!
