NEWARK, Ca. — A Newark man convicted this month of murdering a San Leandro police officer in 2005 threatened to kill a Newark police officer four years earlier, according to testimony presented Tuesday to a jury that will decide whether the killer will be sent to Death Row.

Irving Ramirez, 25, could face the death penalty or life in prison for fatally shooting Officer Nels "Dan" Niemi, 42, who was the subject Tuesday of tearful remembrances by his colleagues and family on the first day of the penalty phase of Ramirez's trial.

On May 10, a jury convicted Ramirez of first-degree murder, along with enhancements for firing a weapon and two special circumstances: killing a police officer and killing to avoid arrest.
