Couple Convicted in Murder,
Torture of Five Year Old

District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Eduardo Zamora was convicted by jury of first degree murder, child homicide and torture for the June 2009 beating death of five year-old Braeden G.

The jury found the special circumstance allegation of intentional killing during the course of torture was not true. A separate jury convicted Amber Ingram of second degree murder and child endangerment resulting in death.

Jurors in this case were confronted with disturbing graphic evidence of the horrific violence that Zamora inflicted on Braeden, who died from massive internal and external injuries. Braeden’s mother, Amber Ingram, was aware of the abuse and allowed it to continue.

Deputy District Attorney Dawn Bladet states, “Today’s verdict is justice served for the torturous murder of a young child, whose own mother did not protect him. I commend the jury, Sacramento Sheriff Department Child Abuse Detectives Tom Koontz and Bruce Wanner as well as other law enforcement and medical professionals for their role in the successful prosecution of this case.”

Zamora is eligible for a term of 50 years to life and Ingram is eligible for a term of 15 years to life. Sentencing is scheduled for Friday, January 14, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. in Department 31 with the Honorable Judge Michael Kenny presiding.
