A Yuba County man pleaded no con­test to man­slaugh­ter in con­nec­tion to the death of an Olive­hurst man in 2019.

Matthew Mire, 33, was al­leged to have mur­dered Jose Lule, 33, af­ter Lule’s body was found by a passerby in the 1900 block of Feather River Boule­vard in Jan­uary 2019. Mire and Lule were re­ported to have left an Olive­hurst home in Mire’s car the night be­fore Lule was found dead.

Mire has been in cus­tody since Jan. 25, 2019, with no bail. On

Sept. 18, the charge of man­slaugh­ter was added by the Yuba County Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s Of­fice and Mire pleaded no con­test to that charge and had the mur­der count dis­missed.

As part of the plea agree­ment, Mire is fac­ing 13 years in prison, ac­cord­ing to Deputy D.A.

John Vacek.

Vacek said 12 years of the sen­tence are con­nected to the man­slaugh­ter case and the other year is for Mire’s in­volve­ment in an as­sault on an­other in­mate while in cus­tody. Mire will be for­mally sen­tenced on Oct. 20 at 1:30 p.m.
