Oxnard Man Sentenced to Life For 2009 Murder

Alexis Ramirez (DOB 10/23/89), of Oxnard, was sentenced to 16 years to life in prison by Judge Gilbert Romero. On July 8, 2020, Ramirez pled guilty to second degree murder with the use of a knife and for the benefit of a criminal street gang for the January 17, 2009, killing of Alfredo Vargas, also of Oxnard.

On the night of January 17, 2009, Ramirez and a group of fellow gang members armed themselves with knives and guns and attacked a party they believed to be thrown by a rival gang in Oxnard.  In fact, the party was for a little girl’s first birthday.  Undeterred by the presence of children, Ramirez and his cohorts attacked the adult partygoers and stabbed multiple victims, including Alfredo Vargas, who died from his wounds.  In 2013, after an extensive investigation by the Oxnard Police Department, Ramirez was arrested and charged for his role in the attack.
