Adel Sambrano Ramos.
This guy is originally from the Philippines.
But he seems to have had no problem embracing California’s unique and vibrant culture.
Prosecutors announced Thursday that they intend to seek the death penalty for Adel Sambrano Ramos, the man accused of ambushing and killing Sacramento police Officer Tara O’Sullivan last June in a north Sacramento neighborhood.
The announcement came in a hearing in Sacramento Superior Court Thursday afternoon where Deputy District Attorney Jeff Hightower revealed prosecutors had tacked on numerous additional counts charging Ramos with the attempted murder of seven other law enforcement officers and weapons violations.
Ramos, 46, now faces a total of 13 felony counts as well as special circumstances making him eligible for the death penalty. Hightower filed a one-sentence notice with the court Thursday that prosecutors will seek that punishment despite California’s moratorium on executions.
