An Illegal immigrant who murdered two Sacramento cops was kicked out of court after shouting obscenities directed at the jury and the victims' families.
Luis Bracamontes, 37, has admitted to murdering Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Detective Michael Davis Jr. during a 2014 crime spree, the Daily Mail reported. However, his lawyers are arguing that he is not responsible for their deaths because he was high at the time.
Bracamontes is facing the death penalty, but his attorneys are hoping to get him life in prison instead. The illegal immigrant from Mexico did not help his case during a court appearance on Jan. 24.
"F**k it, I don’t wanna be here no more," Bracamontes shouted in court, according to a transcript obtained by The Sacramento Bee. "F**k the jury too. And the dead cops, and their stupid f**king families too."
Judge Steve White then had Bracamontes removed from the courtroom, telling him he would not return for the remainder of the guilty phase.
"Mr. Bracamontes, you’ll see the rest of the trial from 5-tank," Judge White said.
"F**k you, judge," Bracamontes responded.
Judge White said he would take Bracamontes' threats to the victims' families seriously.
This is the second time Bracamontes has lashed out in court. During a previous appearance, the suspect referred to his victims as "motherf**kers," and said he would be "out soon to kill more."
During his most recent court appearance, Sheriff's Deputy Jeff Davis gave his account of the Oct. 2014 murder spree. Davis was shot in the arm by Bracamontes during a standoff.
"I thought I was dead," Davis said. "The first thing I thought is, 'I’m about to die. This guy’s trying to kill me. I need to move.'"
"It was just an overall concern that this person did not care about human life at all," Davis added. "After I got two shots off, it wouldn’t fire anymore. At first I thought my weapon had malfunctioned.
"I saw blood everywhere. It was all over my gun and my arm. It was just gushing. As soon as I saw that I knew I really had to end this thing ... [but] I couldn’t pull the trigger."
"I couldn’t even tell you how many holes in my arm. I started yelling, 'I’m hit. I’m hit,'" Davis continued. "I started to pass out. I had a tourniquet in my uniform but I didn’t think of it so I just stuck my fingers in the holes in my arm."
Bracamontes had been deported several times before the murders, but kept sneaking back into the United States, the New York Daily News reported. He was reportedly passing by Sacramento on a trip from his Salt Lake City home at the time.
