SACRA­MENTO — The man ac­cused of shoot­ing a Sacra­mento sher­iff’s deputy in the face with the of­fi­cer’s own gun at a North High­lands light-rail sta­tion has an ex­ten­sive crim­i­nal record, in­clud­ing in­volve­ment in a dou­ble homi­cide in the Bay Area a decade ago.

Law en­force­ment search teams ar­rested Ni­cory Mar­quis Spann, 27, Tues­day night af­ter find­ing him in a fe­tal po­si­tion in a mo­tel hall­way a few blocks from the In­ter­state 80 and Watt Av­enue sta­tion three hours af­ter the scuf­fle and shoot­ing.

Court records show Spann, a San Jose na­tive, was charged nearly a decade ago along with oth­ers on two counts of mur­der in the rob­bery and killing of a brother and sis­ter in their Moun­tain View home.

The mur­der charges against him were dropped, and Spann pled guilty to be­ing an ac­ces­sory af­ter the fact and re­ceiv­ing stolen prop­erty.

He was sen­tenced to 16 months of in­car­cer­a­tion, said Ben­jamin Rada, a spokesman for Santa Clara Su­pe­rior Court.

Sacra­mento County Sher­iff’s Deputy Alex Lad­wig was re­ported in sta­ble con­di­tion af­ter surgery for “ma­jor struc­tural fa­cial in­juries,” ac­cord­ing to a depart­ment state­ment.

A GoFundMe set up on his be­half raised more than $36,000 in a lit­tle more than a day.
