MARTINEZ, Calif. (AP) - A San Francisco Bay area woman has been sentenced to seven years in prison in the 2012 shooting death of her brother-in-law during a family argument.

The Contra Costa Times reported Wednesday (https://bit.ly/10l24Y1) that Erika Carrillo’s sentence on Tuesday came nearly a year after she accepted a plea deal from prosecutors.

The original murder charge was dismissed and the 35-year-old Richmond resident received six years for voluntary manslaughter and one year for a handgun enhancement.

Carrillo was with her husband Ismael Luis Carrillo in the parking lot of a Taco Bell when during a family argument he shot and killed Javier Campos, his sister’s husband. Prosecutors said witnesses heard Erika Carrillo shouting “Shoot him! Shoot him!” before her husband pulled the trigger.

Ismael Luis Carrillo was sentenced to 24 years in prison.
