H.B. man gets six years in inmate death

A Huntington Beach man was sentenced Monday to six years in state prison for his role in the beating death of an inmate at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange in 2006.

Eric Charles Miller, 26, was the ninth and final inmate to be sentenced in the killing of John Chamberlain, who was in custody on misdemeanor charges for possession of child pornography.

The nine men, who reportedly believed Chamberlain was a child molester, gathered around him in a cell and punched, kicked and stomped him to death.

Miller pleaded guilty to one felony count of voluntary manslaughter, according to a release from the Orange County district attorney's office.

The other co-defendants who have been convicted and sentenced in the case are Garrett Eugene Aguilar, 28, of Anaheim; Stephen Paul Carlstrom, 42, of Anaheim; Jeremy Dezso Culmann, 27, of Corona; Miguel Angel Guillen, 48, of Santa Ana; Jared Louis Petrovich, 26, of Tustin; Christopher Teague, 34, of Long Beach; and Raul Villafana, 24, of Santa Ana.
