Approaching three years, the Axel Charrette case is still being worked through the Mexican judicial system.
Randy Charrette, Axel’s father, recently received an update from the U.S. Consulate in Mexico.
According to Charrette, the district attorney has asked for the maximum sentence allowed for the crimes committed against his son.
A timeframe of 60 to 90 days was recently given to the judge for case analysis and sentencing determinations.
If this limit is reached, which isn’t uncommon, the consulate said there should be a sentence in February.
However, it is expected the verdict will be accompanied by appeals that will extend the final sentencing date.
Axel Charrette, the 2-year-old son of Randy and Jen Charrette of Ridgway, was killed in Mexico by his babysitter’s ex-boyfriend Feb. 28.
