MOM JAILED, BOYFRIEND SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR KILLING SON.
A judge sentenced a California mother to life in prison Thursday and gave her boyfriend the death penalty in the 'beyond animalistic' killing of the woman's 8-year-old son, who prosecutors say was punished because the couple believed he was gay.
Gabriel was repeatedly beaten, starved, tied up, locked in a cabinet, shot with a BB gun and once had his teeth knocked out with a bat, the judge said. Court records also detailed that Gabriel had been doused with pepper spray, forced to eat his own vomit and locked in a cabinet with a sock stuffed in his mouth to muffle his screams.
