The man accused of killing a Stanislaus County Police Officer will be in court for the first time on Wednesday.

This booking photo provided by the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department shows Gustavo Perez Arriaga.

Arriaga did not enter a plea during the hearing, and his attorney questioned his mental competency, according to KGO. Authorities say that Perez Arriaga had two prior DUIs and worked on dairy farms. At least three aliases were listed on Arriaga's criminal complaint, and authorities have said that he also used several different names on social media.

33-year-old Ronil Singh sits next to a Christmas tree and a law enforcement flag alongside his K-9 police dog, Sam, on Christmas, the day before his death. Dozens of people stood outside the courthouse holding signs that read, "Justice for Col. Ronil Singh" and "Back the Blue".

Days before New Year's Eve, thousands from around the Newman community held a candlelight vigil to remember Singh, whom residents and co-workers described as an "American patriot" and "an unbelievable person" with "such a big heart". "Our town is small".

Stanislaus County Police say that Gustavo Arriaga was driving drunk when he killed Corporal Ronil Singh, in the early hours of December 26. Perez Arriaga, suspected of gunning down a California policeman, was in the USA illegally and was captured while planning to flee to his native Mexico, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson announced, Friday, Dec. 28, 2018.

Authorities say Perez Arriaga was in the country illegally and had previous arrests for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Arriaga, an undocumented immigrant, was arrested Friday and placed in Singh's handcuffs after law enforcement surrounded a home in Bakersfield, California, about 200 miles south of Stanislaus County.

President Trump cited the case while calling for tougher border security.

Singh had immigrated from Fiji to pursue his dream of becoming a police officer, officials said. He is survived by his wife and a 5-month-old son.

Seven illegal aliens, including Perez Arriaga's two brothers and girlfriend, were arrested for allegedly helping the illegal alien evade arrest.
