Perez hearing rescheduled

Adam Burkhart

Armando Perez appeared in court Aug. 27 markedly more composed than he was at his arraignment earlier in the week.

Perez, the suspect in the 2010 killing of City College student Diana Gonzalez, was

removed from court during his arraignment Aug. 22 for shouting that he was guilty despite that his attorney had entered a plea of not guilty.

Perez was extradited from Mexico City and charged with murder with the special circumstance of lying in wait. Perez was arrested this past Feb. in Tijuana over a yearafter the killing of his wife, Gonzalez.

District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said that prosecutors had to agree not to pursue the death penalty for Perez to be extradited, according to the U-T San Diego.

Perez faces a possible conviction of life in prison without parole.

Perez appeared unemotional at his latest court hearing during which he was given a time waiver to reschedule his preliminary hearing for Nov. 13.
