A 47-year-old Oxnard man will be sentenced in July, following a second-degree murder conviction. Oscar Hernandez Valles faces 16 years to life in prison for the fatal stabbing of Olegario Tello Valladolid, 25, also of Oxnard.
The men became embroiled in a disagreement at Las Sirenas Bar & Grill on December 28, 2013. Valles reportedly stabbed Valladolid several times with a knife. He left the scene, but turned himself in to Oxnard police several hours after the incident. In addition to finding Valles guilty of second-degree murder, the jury also found the special allegation that he personally used a deadly and dangerous weapon during the commission of the murder. Valladolid was unarmed at the time of his death.
