PALMDALE – After over four years, 37-year-old Isauro Aguirre was found guilty of first degree murder in the fatal beating of his girlfriend’s 8-year-old son.

The crime occurred on May 22, 2013, when Gabriel Fernandez suffered a fractured skull, several broken ribs and burns inflicted on him by Aguirre.
