Garcia pleaded guilty to two counts of first degree intentional homicide. Two counts of attempted first degree intentional homicide were dismissed as a result of the plea deal.

There will now be a jury trial to determine Garcia’s mental state.

Garcia has been remanded into custody — and a final pre-trial hearing has been scheduled for December 8th — with a jury trial scheduled to begin on January 25th, 2016.

Garcia is accused in the deaths of five-month-old Kairii Dailey and 39-year-old Paul Kucharczyk.

Two other victims, a 19-year-old woman (the baby’s mother, Alexia Dailey) and her 22-year-old boyfriend, Christopher Hamilton suffered stab wounds that were treatable.

According to the criminal complaint, police were dispatched to a duplex near 39th and Clybourn on January 23rd.

When officers walked into the home, one “observed two males lying on the kitchen floor. Both were covered in blood. One of the males, later identified as Paul Kucharczyk, appeared to be deceased. The second male, later identified as Christopher Hamilton, was somewhat conscious and stated, ‘He’s in the bathroom.’” The complaint indicates Hamilton had suffered approximately 22 lacerations.

The complaint goes on to say “a female, later identified as Alexia Dailey…suffered six lacerations.” She identified to police that Garcia was “the person who had attacked her.” In an interview with police, Dailey said she and Garcia “had met in 2010 and had moved in together about two years ago.” Dailey told police the relationship was abusive — and she decided at the beginning of January she had to end the relationship. Garcia moved out — but “was allowed to come over to see their shared child, Kairii Garcia who had been born in August 2014,” the complaint said.

Dailey told police “Garcia was upset over a video showing Christopher Hamilton playing with Kairii” and that he wanted to come over to see his daughter. The complaint indicates Garcia came over to the duplex and was playing with Kairii when “he asked Ms. Dailey if they could get back together.” Dailey was not willing to do so — and that’s when the complaint said “Garcia lunged at Ms. Dailey” who immediately felt pain.

The complaint says Garcia attacked Dailey — and during that attack, Hamilton came into the kitchen to stop what was happening. Hamilton was stabbed in the process. Kucharczyk also came into the kitchen — and too was stabbed. During this time, the complaint says Dailey ran out of the kitchen, locked herself in the bathroom and called police.

According to the complaint, “Garcia was yelling that he was going to kill Kairii” — all while Dailey was on the phone with police. She pleaded with Garcia not to do so. She even “offered to get back together with him.” At that point, the complaint indicates Garcia “kicked in the bathroom door” and stood over Dailey. Dailey told police Garcia was saying, “I lost you forever! If I can’t have you, no one will. They are all dead!” The complaint also says “Garcia insisted that Ms. Dailey stab him, but Ms. Dailey stated that she would not kill anyone.” The court documents say Garcia later told police he wasn’t planning on killing the baby — just everyone else in the house. The baby was stabbed and killed as she was laying in her crib.

    If he doesn’t get life without parole the system is truly broken. The death penalty needs to be brought back now that we have DNA testing, but the pansy libs only like to kill babies instead of people that deserve it.

    Where is all the racist white pigs, when your own does this horrendous crime??? But always have something to say about black people though, what a shame

    Listen, Suppose you are in an ideal position to raise a flourishing child. You are well-educated, financially secure, have plenty of social support, and so on. (I do not mean to imply that lacking any of these advantages will necessarily prevent a child from flourishing – just that these are advantages, in that they improve the odds that a child will flourish.) Further, suppose that you have a loving disposition, and would certainly care deeply and well for any child you might have. Yet, as it happens, you are ambivalent about the prospect of having children, since you have many other interests and life projects you value, which would be curtailed (at least to some extent) were you to have children.
