More charges could be filed as the investigation into the actions of last Friday continues.

Following the initial appearance, Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said he will be working to move the two suspects to another jail facility.

"I would prefer our officers not have to look at these two suspects every day" during this process, Sheriff Scott Jones said.

There had been some question about his identity. When the man was arrested Friday, he told authorities he was Marcelo Marquez. He also obtained a driving "privilege" card from the State of Utah in 2011 with the name Marcelo Marquez.

The State of Arizona reported this same man has been arrested and deported multiple times under the name Bracamonte.

Bracamonte and his wife, Janelle Monroy, are accused of shooting at Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputies Friday morning, killing Deputy Danny Oliver.

They then carjacked at least two people, firing at Anthony Holmes. Holmes is still in the hospital.

Monroy was arrested soon after. Then, after a brief standoff inside an Auburn home, Bracamonte was also arrested.

Neither Bracamonte nor Monroy entered a plea Tuesday, both will be back in court in December.
