Isauro Aguirre will spend the rest of his life in prison, being tortured daily by guilt for murdering an 8-year-old boy, until the State of California puts an end to his life. At least, that's what the judge who sentenced him to death hopes.
As Newseek reports, Los Angeles County state court judge George Lomeli, in handing down his sentence, told Aguierre that he (Lomeli) hopes Aguierre has sleepless nights in prison, haunted by the memories of torturing to death 8-year-old Gabriel Fernandez. Aguierre tortured and killed the young boy because he thought he was gay.
"I can only wish... that it tortures you."

As it turned out, the boy had been subjected to repeated torture and neglect for much of his own life, at the hands of his mother's boyfriend, all because he thought the boy was gay. Authorities say the young boy had been beaten, starved, forced to eat cat feces, and forced to sleep, bound, in a cabinet. According to NBC News, his ribs had been broken, he had a fractured skull, and at one point, he'd had his teeth knocked out from being hit in the mouth with a bat.
