Two sentenced to prison in homeless man's death

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - Two people were sentenced to prison Monday for their involvement in the 2014 beating death of a 55-year-old homeless man on Mission Gorge Road in Santee.

Brian Kish, 20, pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to four year behind bars. Sarah Baillie, 19, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and was ordered to spend three years in custody.

Three others -- Cassidy Rowin, Danny Swan III and Tyler Dare -- also pleaded guilty to manslaughter in Stephen Hissom's death.

Swan, 20, was sentenced earlier this month to 12 years behind bars. Dare, also 20, was given a nearly 14-year term, and Rowin, 19, was sentenced to three years in prison.

Prosecutors said Hissom and his friend, 49-year-old Edward Allen, were riding bikes along a path in the 9300 block of Mission Gorge Road, under a state Route 52 overpass, when they got into an argument with the defendants on Nov. 29, 2014.

Allen testified that Hissom first asked the defendants to "please move," then said, "Get the hell out of the way."

Allen said he was surrounded, then attacked, but couldn't see what happened to Hissom.
