NEWMAN, Calif.- The man accused of killing a Stanislaus County Police Officer will be in court for the first time on Wednesday.

Stanislaus County Police say that Gustavo Arriaga was driving drunk when he killed Corporal Ronil Singh, in the early hours of Dec. 26. Arriaga then fled Stanislaus County. After a widespread manhunt, he was ultimately captured in Kern County on Friday, three days later. 

According to authorities, Arriaga had two DUI’s and is a suspected gang member. It has been confirmed by ICE that he was in the country illegally.

On Monday, four of the seven people charged as accomplices in helping Arriaga escape faced arraignment in court, pleading guilty. 

Wednesday, Arriaga and three additional accomplices will face arraignment.
