A man accused of the brutal stabbing deaths of a Ventura County couple, and their unborn child during an attempted robbery has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for three other crimes.
Joshua Packer is awaiting trial for the May, 2009 killings of Brock and Davina Husted, as well as their unborn child at the family’s Faria Beach home.
Packer was convicted of an assault at the Ventura County Medical Center, and sentenced to two years in prison.
He also received a six month sentence for a conviction for another assault at the medical center. That term will be served concurrently with the two year prison sentence.
And, Packer received an eight month sentence after being convicted of witness intimidation in connection with a traffic accident.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for the 22 year old man for the Husteds murders.
