South Gate Man Gets 50 Years To Life For Fatal Assault On Infant Daughter

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A South Gate man convicted in the murder of his infant daughter will spend 50 years to life in prison.

KNX 1070’s Brian Ping reports Jose Deras was convicted earlier this month after he punched his 9-month-old daughter in the chest and hit her on the back of her head with a shoe.

A jury took just ten minutes to convict Deras, 21, on murder and assault charges for the Jan. 15, 2011 slaying of his daughter Valerie.

When her mother returned to their home in South Gate, Deras got into a fight with her and sexually assaulted her before he used a knife and tied and bound her up.

Deras, who is from El Salvador, fled to Mexico after the murder. He was subsequently detained in Mexico City and turned over to U.S. authorities four days later.

He and his wife were going through divorce proceedings at the time.

      His fellow inmates will know of his crime soon enough. The justice for this individual in the prison system will be exactly what he deserves. He will die a very slow and painful death. He deserves every bit of it.

    But will the family file a lawsuit now? Based on the fact that now their son is in jail and they have nobody who can support the family. Even though they already collect welfare and food stamps.
