The mother of Gabriel Fernandez and her boyfriend were sentenced today for torturing and murdering her 8-year-old son in 2013, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Pearl Sinthia Fernandez (dob 8/29/83) was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, while Isauro Aguirre (dob 6/13/80) was sentenced to death by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge George Lomeli.

“This case showed how evil can not only inflict lasting damage to those who loved Gabriel but our society as well,” said Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey. “The horrific nature of Gabriel’s abuse and murder has been seared into our minds and the defendants will now spend the rest of their lives in prison for their reprehensible actions.”
