ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It’s been a bad year for Albuquerque Police Officers, as some are now facing charges.
Last month, a judge ruled Officer Dominique Perez and former Detective Keith Sandy will stand trial for killing homeless camper James Boyd last year.
They are facing second degree murder and lesser charges.
As of right now, Perez remains on leave, but a department spokesperson says the department will likely look to fire him.
Then, there is also Officer Cedric Greer.
Lapel video from March shows what happened after Officer Greer allegedly beat a homeless man.
Police say a cadet on a ride along reported it.
Officer Greer is charged with misdemeanor aggravated battery.
He is on leave as well.
