His lawyers were asking that cameras not be allowed in the courtroom. After a lengthy debate, the judge ruled no cameras would be allowed, at least during this pre-trial phase of the case against Bracamontes and his wife, Janelle Monroy.

Then Bracamontes was overheard shouting, "I'm guilty, I'm guilty. I just want my execution now".

He had been relying on an interpreter during Wednesday's proceedings. Bracamontes could face the death penalty is he is found guilty.

Bracamontes and his wife, Janelle Monroy Marquez, were arrested October 24 after a multiple-county crime spree. Bracamonte and Monroy, are accused of shooting at Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputies Friday morning, killing Deputy Danny Oliver.

The couple then drove up to Auburn, where shots were fired at two Placer County Sheriff’s deputies, killing Detective Michael David Davis Jr.

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