2 suspects brutally beat, strip, Redding California homeless man, ‘Let’s burn him.’

Jeffrey Lee Fecht, 19 and Brandon Eudean Sposito, 26, shown in Shasta County Superior Court.

Two Redding California men were both sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison in connection with the vicious beating of Christopher Avery.

A 13-year-old boy also arrested in the attack on the homeless man gives this account of what has been described as 'deplorable.'

"The 13-year-old told police that Sposito and Fecht repeatedly punched, kicked and head-butted Avery, even after he was on the ground and eventually they threw his badly beaten body into a nearby trash bin.

“(The boy) told me Sposito used a large boulder to try and break the victim’s knees by dropping it on the victim,” RPD investigator Will Williams wrote in a separate police report. “(The boy) told me after the victim was beaten, the suspects took the victim’s clothes off and then said, ‘Let’s burn him.’”

  1. Ten years seems a highly insufficient sentence. Radically deplorable crime.
