Romauldo Cordoba Jr., 39, of Archbold has been sentenced by Judge Barber in the Fulton County Common Pleas Court to a total of 14 years in prison.
The sentencing follows the November 5 conviction of Cordoba for Involuntary Manslaughter, a felony of the first degree, and Domestic Violence, a misdemeanor of the fourth degree. During the conviction, the jury also found that firearms had been used in the committing of both offenses.
The Involuntary Manslaughter charges are linked to the death of Joshua McJilton, the 27 year old U.S. Marine from Oceanside, California, who had been in town visiting family in Wauseon. Original reports indicated that Cordoba had fired twice at McJilton after McJilton had attempted to diffuse a situation between Cordoba had his estranged wife. The Domestic Violence Charges are linked to this dispute.
Judge Barber sentenced Cordoba to 30 days for Domestic Violence, 11 years in prison for Involuntary Manslaughter, and a mandatory 3 year prison term for the firearm specification. 14 years was the maximum possible sentence that could be handed down by Judge Barber for the offenses.
