This is according to the Facebook post by The Standard Digital Newspaper on Friday evening.
"Kisumu court sentences Italian man, 50, to life in jail for defiling his 3-year-old adopted son," the post read out.
The convict will serve his sentence at Kisumu Maximum Prison.
The magistrate said suspects with such barbaric behaviour should not be allowed to roam freely as they pose a great danger to the public.
In his mitigation, the suspect told the court that an evil spirit had entered him through, saying he had been bewitched.
But the magistrate rubbished the allegations as an afterthought.
The accused person was whisked away immediately after the court handed him life sentence.
It is alleged he had lured the boy to his bed and defiled him after enticing him with biscuits.
He committed the heinous act on February 23, 2022 at around 6pm in Kisumu County.
