A Ventura County man is expected to be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty to kidnapping one woman, and murdering a second.

Andres Rodriguez had been charged a series of crimes leading to the July, 2013 slaying of Angela Bryant of Santa Paula. The Oxnard man killed Bryant because he believed she had stolen some items from her.

An accomplice in the crimes, Melissa Salazar of Santa Paula, pled guilty to kidnapping and robbery charges, and is expected to get a 20 year prison sentence.
