RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.—A Southern California man who waved a gun and threatened to kill houseguests trying to help his dying, drugged girlfriend has pleaded no contest of voluntary manslaughter.
The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin ( says 34-year-old Andrew Girvan will be sentenced Dec. 9 to six years in prison as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.
Investigators say Girvan gave cocaine and Ecstasy to 23-year-old Miranda Daly at his Ontario home in 2007. He then walked around with a gun and threatened to kill other guests who suggested they call 911.
Girvan was charged with murder, but a judge dismissed the charge in 2008 because of insufficient evidence.
Prosecutors successfully appealed that ruling and the murder charge was reinstated.

This dirt bag had her come over under the pretense that he was going to re-pay her the large amount of money he owed her. When the autopsy was done they found undissolved drugs in her mouth and the back of her throat. HHHHMMMM !! She was the second person to die while with him. OH yeah , the other person was owed money too!!..

He is now out of prison. just over 5 years of killing Miranda. I still don't understand the reason for the prosecutors decision in letting him off so easy, with all his priors and being a felon with a gun, and in commission of this crime, while on probabation, hurting another ex girlfriend. this was not his first violent crime, nor will it probably be his last.

I've continually asked at whose cost and whose expense is he allowed such freedom? another life? It's all on the county justice system - Rancho Cucamongo and San Bernardino District Attorney Ramos. and Judge Mary Fuller

Also, the article above states that the judge dismissed the murder 2 charges due to insufficient evidence. This is not true. She erred in her opinion of the laws regarding what that pos did to kill her intentionally and fully reprehensible actions which were not well thought out, but indeed - was thought out and completed until Miranda was indeed dead. The JUDGE said she was dismissing the Murder 2 charges because she stated that handing someone drugs is no different than handing someone a gun. would that be a loaded or unloaded gun, mz.judged? The Court of Appeals Justices said she erred, and that he should be held accountable for Murder 2, the CA Supreme Court would not hear the degenerative defense arguments to the reinstatement of the Murder 2 charges. Anyone knowing of any information please contact me, Miranda's mother. That pos/monster is out and about in the Inland Empire, and is a danger to society and living in Your town. He has no remorse for killing anyone, nor the destruction he has caused to many other peoples' lives. He does not care about human life.
