Man accused of shooting Sac deputy once charged in double homicide
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.
