Pair cops plea to voluntary manslaughter after mistrial

District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Dion Wheelwright and Jamarl Smith pled to voluntary manslaughter for the death of Curtis Anderson on April 30, 2009.

The case was previously tried in front of a jury and ended in a mistrial. The negotiated plea was discussed with the victim's family. Although they would have liked the defendants to serve a longer prison term, they understood the negotiated plea after watching the trial.

The plea is a fair representation of the possible outcome after trial.Wheelwright faces a maximum of seven years and eight months in prison and Smith faces a maximum of 11 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for March 11, 2011 in Department 31 of the Sacramento Superior Court.
