Woman Pleaded Guilty For Physical Assault And Murder Of Her StepDaughter
A Stockton lady conceded Tuesday, Jan. 14, to mishandling her 4-year-old stepdaughter, prompting her to death. The San Joaquin County District Attorney reports 22-year-old Zulma Chavez will be condemned to 15 years to life in jail on March 22 as she faces one check of second-degree murder and two tallies of lawful offense kid misuse and peril.
On Nov. 25, 2018, court records state an observation camera in the family’s Stockton home gave her hollering at 4-year-old Serenity Moore and her two kin from a love seat. Moore is later snatched and hauled by Chavez into a room and far out of the camera.
The camera can get Chavez telling Moore, “You’re going to cry, no doubt about it,” as per court reports. The 4-year-old’s final words were, “I’m not going to cry; I’m not.” Records state the camera at that point got the young lady’s shouts before “there is an awful crash, and presently, the crying stops.”
Moore was taken to UC Davis Medical Center with a cerebrum drain. She later passed on to the medical clinic. Court records show emergency clinic staff noticed a few other recuperating wounds on Moore’s body that were predictable with being manhandled.
