A man was sentenced Thursday to 14 years in prison for a deadly attack on a stranger.

Quinton James previously pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter.

He and his accomplice, Guadalupe Ruiz, went up to Abel Prendiz and began to attack him in 2015. Prendiz was a stranger to both men.

Ruiz ultimately kicked Prendiz in the head with a steel-toe boot, causing Prendiz to a die a few weeks later, according to the Kern County District Attorney's Office.

Ruiz was sentenced in October to 18 years to life in prison on a second-degree murder conviction.
