Luis Bracamontes made it 12 minutes through his trial Wednesday before exploding into another tirade of profanity and threats, leading Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White to order him removed from the courtroom.
Bracamontes, accused of killing two Sacramento-area deputies in 2014, erupted as his brother began testifying in the second day of his trial.
With Bracamontes shouting in Spanish and English, the judge immediately barked, “Be quiet.”
“F--- you,” Bracamontes replied, then began shouting threats at the two juries in the case and at family members of the slain deputies.
“I’m going to kill one of you motherf-------,” Bracamontes said as jurors were escorted out on White’s orders.
The judge warned Bracamontes that he would be removed if he refused to halt his outbursts, and his public defenders renewed their request to allow him to plead not guilty by reason of insanity.
