Northern California man sentenced to 24 years for killing father, brother

A Mendocino County man who pleaded guilty to killing his father and brother on the Willits Grade in 2018 was sentenced this week to 24 years in prison, the office of District Attorney David Eyster reported.

According to spokesman Mike Geniella, Ubaldo Ramirez Davila, 25, was sentenced Tuesday in Mendocino County SuperiorCourt to 24 years and four months in state prison for the 2018 fatal shooting of his father, 51-year-old Calixto Ramirez Guererro, of Covelo, and his brother, 32-year-old Miguel Angel Ramirez Davila, of Eureka.

The victims were discovered on July 2, 2018, when Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office deputies, California Highway Patrol officers and local firefighters responded to a report of a vehicle blocking traffic on the Ridgewood Grade near the turnoff to the Golden Rule community. First responders found two men inside a maroon Chevrolet pickup truck stopped in a traffic lane, one dead and one critically injured. The injured victim died two days later in a Santa Rosa hospital.

The defendant reportedly became a suspect early on, and was arrested by MCSO deputies the day after the shooting after receiving tips as to his whereabouts. Ubaldo Ramirez Davila reportedly admitted that while sitting in the backseat of the pickup truck, he shot and killed his father and his brother, and eventually entered guilty pleas to two counts of voluntary manslaughter.

According to Geniella, “voluntary manslaughter is generally defined as an intentional killing in which the offender had not formed a prior intent to kill, such as a killing that occurs because of a sudden quarrel.” Ramirez Davila also “must serve 20.5 years before being eligible for parole,” and he reportedly is to be deported to Mexico upon the completion of his prison sentence.
