Los Angeles Man Pleads Guilty to Burning His Children

Posted By Attorney Robert Bernstein || 28-Nov-2012

A Los Angeles man who set his SUV ablaze with his two children inside has pled guilty to two counts of murder.

In 2006, the man drove his SUV to a secluded area, doused it in gasoline and set it on fire while inside the vehicle with his two children in a murder-suicide attempt. However, after the vehicle went up in flames the man rolled out of the SUV, saving himself.

While he was being treated for his burns, he told detectives that he had contemplated killing himself and his children for months because he was angry with his wife. It was ruled that the attack was premeditated, noting that he purchased the gasoline, picked an isolated location and parked the car up against a loading dock, making it difficult for the doors to open.

He has been sentenced to two consecutive life terms without the possibility of parole.
