Michael Christopher Mejia was released from state prison in April 2016 following a grand theft auto conviction in 2014. He was on county probation under Assembly Bill 109 when he allegedly shot and killed Boyer and Torres and also had been arrested five times in seven months for violating his probation.
Mejia is accused of executing veteran suburban Los Angeles cop Keith Lane Boyer, 53, who was in the throes of planning his much-anticipated retirement. Boyer and his partner Patrick Hazell thought they were helping a distressed driver after a car crash.
