LONG BEACH — Jurors on Tuesday are expected to begin deliberating the fate of a Long Beach mom charged with murder in the slaying of her son’s 13-year-old gang rival.

Closing arguments were heard Monday afternoon in the case of Eva Daley, 35, who is charged with murder and gang allegations for the June 2007, killing of Jose Cano.

The 13-year-old victim was jumped by a group of seven youths — members of a tagging crew turned gang — beaten, kicked and stabbed nine times, Deputy District Attorney Dean Bengston told the court.

The attack followed an incident earlier the same day, when the rivals of Daley’s son threw road flares at the back of Daley’s apartment and got into a fight with her son and two of his fellow gang members. Six months earlier, Daley’s son was stabbed by a member of the other gang in an attack that included Cano, who at one time was in the same gang as Daley’s son but who switched sides, the prosecutor noted

Daley was the one who told her son and his friends to gather all their fellow gang members at her house “in a show of force,” after she was disrespected by the attack at her home, Bengston said.
