A California mother and her boyfriend were convicted Tuesday in the 2014 fatal beating and torture of her 3-year-old daughter.
Two juries heard separate trials for Sarah Lynn Krueger, 27, and Ryan Scott Warner, 29. They were both found guilty of first-degree murder with special allegations of torture and assault causing the brutal killing of Krueger’s daughter, Kayleigh Slusher.
Krueger and Scott were accused of killing Kayleigh on Jan. 30, 2014 in Napa, and placing the girl’s body in a freezer, according to police. The pair apparently removed the body from the freezer before fleeing the apartment.

The following day, a friend of Krueger and Scott’s notified the Napa police asking them to make a welfare check at the couple’s apartment, Peoplevreported. The police found Kayleigh’s body partially frozen on her bed.
The couple was arrested on Feb. 2, 2014, at an El Cerrito metro station.
