Calif. Mom and Boyfriend Tortured and Killed Her 3-Year-Old Daughter Before Stuffing Body in Freezer

A Napa, California, mother and her boyfriend were convicted Tuesday of killing her three-year-old daughter, who was found partially frozen at the couple’s apartment after her body was put in the freezer, PEOPLE confirms.

Sarah Lynn Krueger, 27, and her 29-year-old boyfriend, Ryan Scott Warner, were both found guilty of first-degree murder with the special circumstance of torture in the death of Kayleigh Slusher, who died from multiple blunt force injuries. The fatal injury caused a rupture in her small intestine.

The couple were also found guilty of abuse of a child under eight causing death.

Both of the verdicts were read Tuesday. Sentencing is scheduled for July 27. Both potentially face life without the possibility of parole.

Their attorneys could not be reached for comment and it was not immediately clear if they planned to appeal.
