REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The Filipino American correctional deputy accused along with two other deputies of killing an inmate at Santa Clara County Jail is now out on bail.
Fil-Am Jereh Lubrin and co-defendant Rafael Rodriguez posted $1.5 million each in bail each on Monday and are set to return to court for a plea hearing on Oct. 13.
The third co-defendant Matthew Farris has a separate bail hearing.
The three deputies are charged with murder in the vicious beating of mentally ill inmate Michael Tyree in late August.
Prosecutors say the correctional officers brutally beat Tyree and only called for help an hour later.
Tyree’s unresponsive body was found after midnight on Aug. 27 with vomit and feces all over it.
