Ventura County Teen Gets 25 Years To Life Sentence For Killing

Posted on Monday, November 25, 2013 2:58pm

A Ventura County teen received a 25 years to life sentence for stabbing to death another teen, in what prosecutors say was a gang related killing.

Alex Medina killed Seth Scarminach at an April, 2009 party in Meiners Oaks.

Medina was 14 year old at the time, but he was tried as an adult.

Investigators say Medina stabbed the 16 year old more than two dozen times.

In addition to the minimum 25 year sentence for the first degree murder conviction, the now 18 year old will receive an extra year behind bars for using a knife in the killing.
