(02-11) 18:07 PST SAN FRANCISCO — Three young women have pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter for luring a man to an isolated area near the ocean in San Francisco, shooting him in the head and stealing his car and wallet, authorities said Wednesday.

Kimberly Gutierrez, 21, of San Francisco, pleaded guilty Friday and faces as much as 21 years in prison for her role in the killing of Eugene Gorenman, 27, of San Francisco, who was found dead near a gun battery at Fort Funston on March 29, 2004.

Gutierrez was 16 at the time. She had been charged as an adult with murder, and could have been sentenced to 25 years to life if convicted.

A co-defendant, Felicia Mehrara, 21, was also a juvenile at the time of the killing. She and another co-defendant, Jillian McIlvenna, 24, also pleaded guilty to manslaughter rather than be tried for murder. McIlvenna faces 10 years in prison and Mehrara faces eight years when the women are sentenced April 3 in San Francisco Superior Court.

Erica Derryck, spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office, said the only witnesses to the crime were the perpetrators. “We believe this disposition ensured the toughest sentence,” she said.

Gorenman was a Russian immigrant who grew up in Walnut Creek, graduated from UC Berkeley and worked as a computer engineer with Pacific Gas and Electric Co.

Police homicide investigators focused on the three women after one of Gorenman’s credit cards was used to buy a cell phone after he had been found dead.

The buyer said he had stolen the card from three girls he met in downtown San Francisco. He led police to a house in San Bruno where McIlvenna and Gutierrez were living together.

McIlvenna eventually told police that she and her friends had been targeting men – striking up conversations with them with the goal of getting their cash and property.

McIlvenna told authorities that she and three other teenage girls had enticed Gorenman to Fort Funston after he pulled up along side them at a traffic light on Fulton Street. One of the four girls was never charged.

As the girls walked with him near a World War II bunker, Gutierrez shot Gorenman in the head, and Mehrara took his wallet, McIlvenna told authorities.

Gutierrez then drove away in Gorenman’s car, took off the license plates and dumped it in the Bayview, McIlvenna said.

After the killing, the defendants had a falling out and eventually McIlvenna agreed to testify.

Gutierrez’s attorney, Tony Tamburello, said the killing was “a tragic event, and the three young women – two of them were minors at the time – are taking responsibility for it.”

“It’s difficult to understand why and how it happened,” Tamburello said. “But they are taking responsibility – that’s the bottom line.”

  1. i know right… this girl jillian was a good friend of mine when we were teens. i loved her. she was the only one who could understand me. sad story. check out sf weekly’s new article.


  2. I feel that Jillian should have gotten the lesser sentence out of the three. From what I’ve read, she participated the least in this crime. Maybe she received a higher sentence because she was an adult at the time the crime was committed? Kimberly definitely should have gotten the max (deserved more than 21 years for taking a life at whim) as she more than likely planned this out since she had a gun with her already and knew what she was going to do once they met this man. Rumor has it that Kimberly always wondered what it would be like to shoot someone in the head. Sick!! And Felicia, although she can come off as being sweet, definitely has another side. Story is that she is the one who provided the gun and robbed the man of his wallet. Definitely should have received a longer sentence than Jillian! Sad and tragic all the way around for everyone involved-from the victim and his family to these girls and their families.


  3. these bitches piss me off! They always refer to someone’s upbringing and rough life..shit I had it rough at times but I did not throw up to murder someone! These girls were & are bad news..in my opinion they got off too lightly..enuff said!
