  • Transient gets 11 years for killing

    Sep 11, 2018 | via San Mateo Daily Journal 

    The transient accused of fatally beating a fellow homeless man last fall at a Half Moon Bay encampment a day after biting a chunk from the ear of the man's friend was sentenced yesterday to 11 years in prison on one count of voluntary manslaughter. The 11-year term was expected after being reached as part of a plea bargain that spared Brian David Ruckel, 48, trial for murder and the possibility of a 33-years-to-life sentence if convicted.
