Tim Hufner

Killing occurred during string of robberies and attempted robberies.

A Ventura County man received a 32 years-to-life sentence after pleading guilty to murder and a string of other charges from a 2018 crime spree.

Prosecutors say over the span of three hours, Osvaldo Hernandez committed three robberies in the Oxnard area. Then, during a fourth robbery attempt, he shot and killed a man he encountered on an Oxnard street.

Hernandez was arrested about a month later.

He pled guilty to one count of second-degree murder, plus five other charges related to the crime spree.
