Man found guilty of killing ex-girlfriend, 2-year-old at Bremerton mobile home


PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — A man accused of killing his former girlfriend and a 2-year-old boy at a Bremerton mobile home park was found guilty on Tuesday.

Closing arguments in the trial of 30-year-old Geraldo DeJesus wrapped up last Wednesday.

A jury found him responsible for the deaths of 29-year-old Heather Kelso and her roommate’s toddler, 2-year-old Kaden Lum, on March 28, 2015.

Prosecutors portrayed DeJesus as a jealous ex-boyfriend on a rampage, but DeJesus said he was sleeping in Port Orchard at the time of the shooting.

Attorney Caleb Cunningham said investigators focused on DeJesus to the exclusion of other suspects. DeJesus was not arrested until nearly five months after the shooting.
