Aramazd Andressian Sr., the South Pasadena man who pleaded guilty last month to murdering his 5-year-old son, was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison Wednesday morning in an Alhambra courtroom. According to the Los Angeles Times, Ana Estevez, Aramazd Andressian Jr’s mother, addressed her ex-husband during the sentencing, telling him, “I hope you relive the image of you murdering my baby in your mind for the rest of your life…I pity you. You are a failure as a father. You are a failure as a man. You are a failure as a human being.” Officials later released the details of Piqui’s murder at an afternoon press conference. It was determined that Andressian Sr. smothered his son to death after taking him to Disneyland on April 20. Reports said that the South Pasadena resident had premeditated the murder for three months and had planned to frame it on Estevez.
