Bracamontes Will Stand Trial For 2014 Cop Killings


A judge says a man charged with killing two Northern California sheriff's deputies during a daylong rampage is competent to stand trial.

The Sacramento Bee reports Luis Bracamontes was declared mentally fit and is able to assist in his own defense.

Defense attorneys sought a mental health evaluation. Experts disagreed over whether he is competent.

Bracamontes is charged in the October 2014 shooting deaths of Sacramento County Sheriff Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County Deputy Michael Davis Jr. and injuries to two others.

Bracamontes' wife was also charged for her role in the shootings.
