Sentencing postponed in Montclair nightclub killing

RANCHO CUCAMONGA — A sentencing hearing for two men convicted in a fatal Montclair nightclub shooting was postponed Friday to Nov. 4.

Esteban Hernandez, 27, and Armando Ledesma, 24, were scheduled to be sentenced in West Valley Superior Court. Both men pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in June in connection with the fatal shooting Jan. 13, 2009 of 31-year-old Rafaela Davila.

Hernandez and Ledesma, both alleged members of an Ontario street gang, were accused of participating in Davila’s shooting death in the parking lot outside El Encanto Night Club, 10555 Mills Ave., which has since been renamed El Capo Night Club.

Davila, of Pomona, allegedly identified herself as a member of another gang leading up to the shooting, prosecutors said.

Hernandez and Ledesma each entered their no contest pleas as part of plea agreements with prosecutors. Hernandez’s agreement carried a 16-year state prison sentence, while Ledesma’s agreement carried an 11-year sentence.
