2 Local Fullerton Police Officers Charged With Murder

Kelly Thomas Murder CaseI was down at the courthouse today when Orange County prosecutors announced the filing of second-degree murder charges against two Fullerton police officers. If memory serves me correctly, this may be the first time that Orange County prosecutors have charged an on-duty police officer with murder.

It is alleged that before the lethal beating of Kelly Thomas, one of the officer’s said, “These fists are ready to F you up.” A second officer is also being accused of smashing the victim in the face with a Tazer.

Officer Manuel Ramos is charged with second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter and if convicted, faces up to 15 years to life in prison. Cpl. Jay Cicinelli is charged with involuntary manslaughter and use of excessive force. Those charges carry a maximum sentence of four years in prison.
