BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A 19-year-old man faces a 20-year prison term after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter and three other felonies filed in connection with a deadly shooting last year.
James Randle pleaded no contest Monday to the manslaughter charge, attempted murder and two counts of taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent, according to court records. Four other charges, including first-degree murder, were dismissed.
Sentencing is set for Aug. 8.
Police arrested Randle about a week after the Aug. 11 shooting on Tyree Toliver Street that killed Terry Laray Herron, 46, and wounded another man. Both men, struck while inside a vehicle, were East Side Crips members, reports say.
More than 20 shell casings were located in the street, northwest of the vehicle.
