STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors in California say they have charged a suspect in a bank robbery with three counts of murder in the deaths of a hostage and two accomplices, and 22 counts of attempted murder of police officers in a shootout.
San Joaquin County Superior Court Judge Franklin Stephenson on Monday read a total of 35 felony counts charged against 19-year-old Jaime Ramos.
Police say three armed men entered a Bank of the West on Wednesday and took three women, two bank employees and a customer hostage. An hour-long chase and running gun battle with police followed.
One of the hostages, 41-year-old Misty Holt-Singh, died as well as two of the suspected robbers. Police say Ramos used Holt-Singh as a human shield.
Deputy Public Defender Jonathan Fattarsi, who represents Ramos, said he had only spoken briefly with his client about the charges and didn't elaborate.
