South Coast Man Pleads Guilty In Killing Of Fellow Jail Inmate


A Ventura County jail inmate has entered a guilty plea to a charge that he killed a fellow inmate.

It happened in September of 2018, at the county’s Pre-Trial Detention facility.  Prosecutors say Daniel Fuller was upset that another man was housed in the same area of the jail as him.  They say Fuller told Jeffery Kibler to leave. 

When the Ventura man refused to go, Fuller punched him in the face.  The 54-year-old man died several hour later from a ruptured spleen.

Fuller pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter.  The now 36-year-old Ventura man is facing a maximum eight-year prison sentence.
