San Jacinto man sentenced to 11 years for killing girlfriend and her fetus

A person who killed his still-missing 27-year-old girlfriend and her unborn little one after an argument at their San Jacinto house was sentenced Friday, May 17, to the utmost of 11 years in state jail for a voluntary manslaughter conviction.

A Banning jury in March discovered Angel Martine McIntire, 29, of Beaumont responsible of 1 depend of voluntary manslaughter and acquitted him of two counts of first-degree homicide.

McIntire was arrested in 2022 after a virtually two-year Riverside County sheriff’s investigation into the disappearance of Diana Perez Gonzalez.

According to a trial temporary filed by the District Attorney’s Office, McIntire and Gonzalez had a conflicted relationship that started in August 2018. McIntire and Gonzalez moved in collectively, however inside a yr, he grew to become abusive, prompting Gonzalez, who was pregnant with their daughter, to acquire a restraining order in opposition to him and to maneuver out of their shared residence in December 2019, in accordance with the temporary.

The abuse inflicted on the lady culminated in a home violence conviction in opposition to McIntire. However, as a result of the 2 had a child collectively, they continued to speak, finally leading to her welcoming the defendant into her house within the 3000 block of Crooked Branch Way within the fall of 2020, the temporary stated.

Gonzalez then grew to become pregnant once more, which fueled discord, and McIntire once more turned bodily abusive, in accordance with courtroom papers.

On Dec. 4, 2020, with Gonzalez eight weeks pregnant, investigators theorize McIntire attacked her, inflicting deadly accidents, although the tactic stays unknown.

According to the temporary, counting on cell phone sign pings and social media exercise, detectives had been capable of monitor McIntire’s actions that day, which took him by way of Cherry Valley, Beaumont, Gilman Springs, Aguanga, Cahuilla, Palm Desert and again house. At one level in the course of the circuit, he dropped his and the sufferer’s daughter at his mom’s house in Beaumont, telling her that he didn’t know the place the sufferer was, relaying the identical data to Gonzalez’s household over the next week, in accordance with courtroom papers.

One of her family members lastly reported her lacking on Dec. 11, 2020, and detectives instantly suspected foul play. However, McIntire was adamant in statements to detectives that he had no clue of his girlfriend’s whereabouts, suggesting she had returned to her native Mexico.

McIntire’s legal professional, Daniel DeLimon, stated he advised jurors in the course of the trial that there was not sufficient proof to convict his consumer of homicide.

“There was an absence of proof as to the place, when, how, and why she was murdered,” DeLimon stated in an interview Friday. “The prosecution argued that these issues didn’t matter so long as they believed he killed her and argued a killing below these circumstances may solely be homicide. They relied closely on prior cases of home violence and his conduct after her disappearance. We argued there was inadequate proof to indicate he did it and inadequate proof to set what crime he dedicated.”

While somebody will be charged with homicide for the loss of life of a fetus, DeLimon famous, there isn’t a cost of manslaughter of a fetus, so there was no conviction associated to the fetus’ loss of life.
