  • After strange proceedings, hearing set for accused deputy killer Bracamontes

    A preliminary hearing is scheduled to begin Monday, March 28, 2016, for Luis Monroy Bracamontes, who is accused of killing two Sacramento-area deputies in October 2014. The defendant's odd behavior, off-kilter pronouncements and blurted admission of guilt at an earlier court appearance have created a strange air around the case.
