Yreka Man Sentenced To Life In Prison

A Yreka man has been sentenced for fatally shooting two men after a fight at a party in Fort Jones. 58-year-old Earl Stanfield shot 29-year-old Ronald Minard and 52-year-old Darrell Henderling in June of 2012. He got into a fight with one of them at a party and returned a short time later and shot both men with a handgun as they approached the car he was driving. Stanfield was then disarmed and detained by the victims' family members. He took a plea deal last month and was sentenced on Friday to 50 years to life in state prison.
