SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A man charged with killing two Northern California sheriff’s deputies is making more bizarre courtroom comments even as witnesses describe the slayings.

Luis Enrique Monroy Bracamontes made strange statements to his defense attorneys and refused to calm down during the second day of his preliminary hearing Tuesday, The Sacramento Bee reported (https://bit.ly/22YWAgu ).

A year ago, Bracamontes blurted out that he killed the deputies in October 2014 and is ready to be executed. A Sacramento County Superior Court judge ruled in January that he is competent to stand trial, though his attorneys say he is mentally ill.

Sacramento police Detective Patrick Higgins described the bloody, chaotic scene as Placer County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr. was fatally shot following a miles-long chase. Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver was killed earlier.
