• Monterey Park Man Pleads Not Guilty to Murder Charge


    ALHAMBRA (CNS) – A Bakersfield resident accused of fatally stabbing a man during a brawl that erupted between rival Pop Warner football fans at a Monterey Park restaurant pleaded not guilty today to a murder charge.

    Jose De Jesus Ruiz, 22, is accused in the Oct. 6 slaying of Patrick Raymond Ortega, 25, of Monterey Park.

    The confrontation occurred at a Shakey’s restaurant at 1955 S. Atlantic Blvd.

    Ruiz attended a Pop Warner game in Bell Gardens before arriving at the restaurant, where a group of fans from a rival team had also gone, according to authorities, who said Ortega was stabbed multiple times during an argument that escalated into a physical fight.

    Ruiz, who is also known by the name Jose De Jesus Salas, was arrested the following day by Monterey Park police.

    If convicted, he could face 26 years to life in state prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
