KOAT Legal Analyst John Day speaks to KOAT TV news anchor Shelly Ribando about the Omaree Varela trial. During today’s testimony, several letters were read to the jury from Omaree’s mother, Synthia Varela Casaus, seeming to implicate Omaree’s stepfather, Steven Casaus, of the murder of Omaree. Omaree Varela, 9, was found unresponsive in his home on December 27, 2013. Further investigation after Omaree death concluded the child was abused for years and died due to injuries from being beaten.
