Defense: Wife was ‘under duress’ during crime spree that led to NorCal deputies’ deaths

During closing arguments Wednesday, prosecutors are painting Janelle Monroy as a willing participant with husband Luis Bracamontes in a crime spree that resulted in the death of Placer County sheriff’s Det. Michael Davis in 2014.

Prosecutors said evidence shows Monroy actively moved an assault rifle from one carjacked vehicle to another, resulting in Davis’s death.

Defense attorneys said Monroy was under duress and in a car with a violent, unstable man, who was armed and had just killed Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver.

ATLANTA, Ga. — Police are looking for a group of people who opened fire on an assistant police chief’s car and home during a weekend crime spree in Newton County.

“It breaks my heart that my wife and kids had to experience that firsthand,” Watts told Channel 2. “I do believe my house was shot up solely because I’m a police officer.” 

“We are thankful Assistant Chief Watts and his family are safe,” Monroe police said in a Facebook post.
