An Orange County jury has reached a verdict in the case of two former Fullerton police officers accused of killing a schizophrenic homeless man during a violent encounter in 2011.
Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli are charged with striking Kelly Thomas with a baton and a stun gun in a beating that left the homeless man comatose. He died five days after the altercation.
Monday was the first full day of deliberation. The case went to the jury late Thursday and jurors did not deliberate on Friday.
