Man convicted of murder in slaying of Carmichael residents

A Sacramento County jury returned guilty verdicts against a man accused in the shooting deaths of two Carmichael residents.

Jeremy Pridmore-Ybarra, 36, was convicted Thursday of first-degree murder for the death of Breeze Hubbard, 37, and second-degree murder for the slaying of Jon Colbert. The jury found him guilty of special circumstance allegations of committing multiple murders and using a gun. Pridmore-Ybarra also was convicted of multiple weapons charges, including possession of assault rifles and a silencer, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release.

On Dec. 12, 2014, Pridmore-Ybarra went to Colbert and Hubbard’s residence in the 5200 block of Kenneth Avenue in Carmichael. He was angry with Colbert and confronted him for allegedly disrespecting him, authorities said. During an argument between the two men, Pridmore-Ybarra pulled out a Glock 40-caliber handgun and shot Colbert twice in the head. He then shot Hubbard, Colbert’s girlfriend, in the chest and head because she had witnessed the murder.

Pridmore-Ybarra is to be sentenced Oct. 28 by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White.
