Goshen man gets life in prison for 2016 murder at RV Park

Allen Horsley, 26, shot a man in the head at a Goshen RV park


VISALIA – A Goshen man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing a man at a local RV park.

On June 14, Tulare County Superior Court Judge Juliet Boccone sentenced 26-year-old Allen Horsley to 50 years-to-life in prison for murdering a man in Goshen.

Just before 1 a.m. on Nov. 3, 2016, Tulare County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a shooting at the Wooden Shoe RV Park in Goshen where they found a male victim unresponsive from a gunshot wound to the head. During the investigation, deputies learned that Horsley and the victim had been in an argument after returning from a nearby mini-mart with friends. Horsley produced a handgun and held it to the victim’s temple.

After swatting it away, the victim began to leave but Horsley again aimed at the victim’s head and fired a single shot killing the man. Horsley fled and was taken into custody later that afternoon. A jury convicted Horsley of premeditated first-degree murder with the special allegation of using a firearm, and assault with a deadly weapon (gun) on Feb. 11.

Victoria Corbitt, 18, helped Horsley leave the crime scene. She pleaded no contest to being an accessory to murder after the fact and that the crime was committed while she was out on bail for check fraud. She was sentenced to 4 years and 8 months in state prison for both cases in March 2017.

The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Candice Moore of the Major Crimes Division and investigated by Sergeant Daniel McBride of the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office.
