RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Jurors recommended death on Tuesday, June 5, for Earl Ellis Green for the 2010 murder of Riverside police Officer Ryan Bonaminio.
Green, a 46-year-old parolee, looked straight ahead as the verdict was read, but then turned and grinned at cameras moments after the jurors left the room.
Wearing a gray jacket and tie, Green also tried joking with a court deputy before being taken away in shackles.
