Meat Clever Murderer Pleads, Gets Life

Sacramento County District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Lalesh Kumar pled guilty as charged to the June 2005 murders of Virginia Pulido and her three year-old son Ramiro Pulido with the use of a meat cleaver. Kumar admitted to the special circumstance allegation of the commission of multiple murders. He also pled guilty to two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon on two Sacramento police officers who tried to apprehend Kumar after he committed these crimes.

In exchange for a plea to these offenses and a waiver of appellate rights, the District Attorney’s Office agreed not to pursue the death penalty, but instead have Kumar sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole.

"This disposition was based upon an assessment of Kumar’s significant mental health problems, the strong possibility of a hung jury at the penalty phase at trial or the risk of Kumar being found not guilty by reason of insanity, Deputy District Attorney Dawn Bladet said. "The resolution of this matter assures that this dangerous individual will never get out of prison for the remainder of his life.”

Sentencing is scheduled for January 28, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. in Department 22 of the Sacramento Superior Court with the Honorable Judge Russell Hom presiding.
