UPDATE (April 20, 2017 11:40 a.m.): Peter David Garcia was sentenced to 11 years. His plea deal take back was denied.


A Bakersfield man is scheduled to be sentenced this afternoon for the death of a man whose body was found in a recycling bin.

Peter David Garcia pled “no contest” to a charge of voluntary manslaughter last year in the death of Efron Ramon Estrada back in 2014. 

Estrada’s body was found inside a blue recycling bin on Wilson Road. 

Garcia took a plea deal back in September. After speaking with his attorney last month, Garcia wants to withdraw his plea deal.
