Two San Fernando Valley residents were sentenced Wednesday to prison sentences ranging from 11 to 13 years for the killing of a 21-year-old man during a fight outside a party in Burbank.

Pasadena Superior Court Judge Teri Schwartz ordered Robert Allen Stout, 20, of Van Nuys, to serve 13 years behind bars for the March 2, 2019, slaying of Christian Guevara.

Stout pleaded no contest July 29 to voluntary manslaughter and admitted an allegation that he had personally used a firearm.

Jose Anthony Valdivieso, 21, of Northridge, was sentenced to 11 years in state prison for his no contest plea to voluntary manslaughter.

Stout and Valdivieso were involved in an early morning fight in which Guevara was shot outside of a home in the 4000 block of West Clark Avenue where a party was being held, authorities said.

Police said Stout confessed to shooting Guevara, who died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen after being taken to a local hospital.

Stout and Valdivieso were arrested two days later by Burbank police and have remained behind bars since then.
