SANTA MARIA, Calif. (AP) -- A judge has sentenced a California man to 75 years to life in prison for killing a 4-year-old boy and torturing a 17-month-old girl.
Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge Edward Bullard sentenced 30-year-old James Lujan of Lompoc on Thursday, after hearing from family members of the 4-year-old victim.
The Santa Maria Times reports the judge said he listened to Lujan's testimony and saw no indication of remorse.
A jury convicted Lujan of second-degree murder in the 2009 killing of Diego Calles, after prosecutors presented evidence that the defendant became annoyed with the boy's potty-training issues and speech impediment, and beat him.
The jury also convicted Lujan of torturing a 17-month-old girl in 2006.
Both victims were children of women Lujan dated.
