On 25 August, Marvin Magallanes, 31, was sentenced to two life terms in prison for the murders of Sabah Alsaad, 49, Onosai Tavita, 52, and Danny Pham, 27.

According to The Independent, the California native killed two homeless men—Alsaad and Tavita—in 2016 and 2017 respectively, and then proceeded to strangle his cellmate Pham in their joint prison cell. Both of the homeless men had been sleeping rough when Magallanes killed them. Meanwhile, Pham had only been sharing a cell with Magallanes for a few weeks before he was murdered.

Magallanes allegedly believed that media personality and businesswoman Kylie Jenner was communicating with him and ordering him to commit the aforementioned crimes. He went as far as to claim that the reality TV star had “told him to do it” or otherwise someone was going to “steal his life.”

During the recent trial, one prison guard testified that the inmate did indeed suffer with “split personality” disorder. Family members further emphasised this, stating that Magallanes had displayed erratic behaviour following a painful breakup in his youth.

Ultimately, however, Orange County Superior Court Judge Kimberly Menninger declined Magallanes attorney’s “not guilty by reason of insanity” plea and sentenced the offender to two terms of life in prison without parole for the killings of the homeless men and a further 15 years to life for murdering Pham.

This was not Magallanes first brush with Jenner either. In June 2016, Magallanes attempted to crash his car through the socialite’s security gates at her home in Calabasas, California. At the time, he accepted a plea deal and was only required to serve ten days in LA County Jail followed by a year of probation, as reported by the Daily Mail.

It appears that the convict has been convinced that he has been in a romantic relationship with Jenner since before 2016—fuelling an obsessive and paranoid fascination with the celebrity.

During the 2022 criminal trial, Pham’s sister spoke to the court about the impact of Magallanes’ actions. She said, “Every day is a struggle and constant reminder of my brother’s absence. As I sat in court and listened to the evidence shown against Marvin Magallanes, I cannot believe how he did not show any sign of remorse.”
