Supreme Court upholds death sentence in Janaya Thompson case

The Mississippi State Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence and verdict of a Gulfport man convicted in the brutal death of a five-year-old girl back in 2014.

The Supreme Court affirmed the sentence against Alberto Garcia, saying “the sentence imposed, death, is proportionate compared to other similar cases.”

Garcia pleaded guilty to the 2014 death of Janaya Thompson.

Search teams found her body hanging in an abandoned Gulfport trailer a day after her disappearance and death.
