The Galt man police believe shot and killed an animal control officer was released from the hospital today and booked into Sacramento County Jail.
He had been in police custody at a Sacramento hospital since Thursday.
Suspect Joseph Corey was transported by ambulance to University of California, Davis, Medical Center Thursday morning after being arrested following a nearly 17-hour police stand off.
Police believe Corey shot and killed officer Roy Marcum, of Elk Grove, who was retrieving pets believed to have been left in Corey’s eviction. Marcum died on scene.
Corey has not yet been arraigned. Until Monday, he was being treated at the hospital for health issues not related to the incident.
Since he has been in police custody, he has not been allowed to have visitors and remains handcuffed to the hospital bed while being guarded by a Galt Police officer on overtime, according to Galt Police Lt. Jim Uptegrove.
Corey had to be deemed medically fit by a doctor to be booked into the Sacramento County jail. He should be arraigned later this week.
