An Orange County jury has reached non guilty verdicts in the case of two former Fullerton police officers accused of killing Kelly Thomas, a homeless man during a violent encounter in 2011.

Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli were declared “not guilty” by a jury on Monday afternoon.  The two officers were charged with striking Thomas with a baton and a stun gun. Thomas died five days after the incident.

Several protesters have gathered in front of the court house where the jury verdict was reached.
