Kelly Thomas death: Fullerton officer remains in custody
Arraignment for Manuel Ramos on charges of second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter was postponed Wednesday, with the hearing rescheduled for Monday.
The other officer arrested in the case, Jay Cicinelli, posted $25,000 bail after pleading not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter and using excessive force.
Thomas' father, Ron Thomas, said Wednesday he was pleased that bail was kept at $1 million for Ramos.
"He's wearing handcuffs right now -- which is great -- for the murder of my son," Ron Thomas said.
