UPDATE: Auburn police officer Jeff Nelson pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree murder and first-degree assault during his arraignment Monday. Bail was set at $500,000 for Nelson, who shot and killed 26-year old Jesse Saray during an arrest in May last year.
King County Superior Court Judge Veronica Galván took issue with the assessment that Nelson should be released without bail. The prosecutor argued that the officer didn’t pose a threat since he was no longer on duty.
