On June 10, 2024, killer socialite Rebec­ca Gross­man was sen­tenced for the 2020 deaths of broth­ers Mark, 11, and Jacob Iskan­der, 8, in West­lake Vil­lage, California. 

Gross­man­’s daugh­ter Alex­is, 19, made a shock­ing rev­e­la­tion about her moth­er’s past abuse in a video plea for lenien­cy dur­ing the sen­tenc­ing hearing.

Alex­is told the court that Gross­man was molest­ed at the age of 11 and suf­fered emo­tion­al and phys­i­cal abuse before she turned 13. Pros­e­cu­tors had asked for the max­i­mum penal­ty of two 15-years-to-life sen­tences to run con­sec­u­tive­ly, which would like­ly mean Gross­man would spend the rest of her life in prison.

The Iskan­der fam­i­ly deliv­ered emo­tion­al vic­tim impact state­ments, with the boys’ moth­er Nan­cy scream­ing at Gross­man and recount­ing the hor­ror of los­ing her sons. In a sur­pris­ing moment, Nan­cy said that despite her anger, she still loves Grossman.

Gross­man­’s defense has framed her as a “human­i­tar­i­an” who helped burn vic­tims and sur­vivors of domes­tic vio­lence, but pros­e­cu­tors alleged she got her fam­i­ly to lie for her dur­ing the trial. 

The case has been wide­ly fol­lowed, with Gross­man­’s daugh­ter, hus­band, and son con­tin­u­ing to sup­port her.

The sen­tenc­ing hear­ing is ongo­ing, with the judge set to deter­mine Gross­man­’s fate in the com­ing days. The trag­ic deaths of the two young broth­ers have sparked out­rage and grief, under­scor­ing the need for account­abil­i­ty and jus­tice in such sense­less acts of violence.
