No contest plea in Hillsborough killing 

A 31-year-old man is facing seven years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of his friend in the wealthy San Mateo County suburb of Hillsborough.

Bradley Kleiman entered the plea on Friday as part of a deal with prosecutors. He was facing a murder charge in the June 2010 death of 30-year-old Christopher Calvache that could have landed him in prison for up to 40 years to life.

But prosecutors suffered a setback when a judge indicated he planned to throw out key evidence in the case. Judge Stephen Hall said Hillsborough police continued to interview Kleiman even after he requested an attorney, making the police interview inadmissible.

Kleiman was accused of shooting Calvache in the pool house of Kleiman's parents' home.

It was Hillsborough's first homicide since 2004.
