Two men have been sentenced for killing a man outside of a house party in Burbank last year, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced today.

Deputy District Attorney Christopher Stogel said Robert Allen Stout (dob 10/10/99) of Van Nuys was sentenced to 13 years in prison and Jose Anthony Valdivieso (dob 8/21/99) of Northridge was sentenced to 11 years in prison. Both defendants were sentenced yesterday.

The defendants pleaded no contest on July 29 to voluntary manslaughter and Stout also admitted that he personally used a firearm.

Stout and Valdivieso were involved in a fight outside of the house on March 2, 2019, the prosecutor said. During the fight, victim Christian Guevara, 21, was shot to death with a handgun, the prosecutor added.

Case GA105324 was investigated by the Burbank Police Department.
