8-year-old Los Angeles County boy's alleged abuse described in graphic grand jury testimony

Graphic grand jury testimony reveals details of the abuse suffered by an 8-year-old Los Angeles County boy allegedly battered to death by his mother and her boyfriend.

The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/1o9x6pK ) court documents made public Monday show Gabriel Fernandez was 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.

The Palmdale boy died in May 2013, days after he was hospitalized with injuries including a cracked skull, broken ribs and burns.

Pearl Fernandez and Isauro Aguirre have pleaded not guilty to murder charges with special allegations of torture.

Gabriel remained with his mother and her boyfriend despite several investigations by social workers. His death prompted calls for sweeping reforms to the county's troubled foster-care system.
