SAN DIEGO (AP) - A newly unsealed probation report shows that the suspected killer of a San Diego police officer could have been in jail at the time of last month's shootout if a judge had followed a probation officer's recommendation.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports Friday that Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sontag sentenced Holim Lee in 2008 to one year in county jail for a robbery at a home.

According to the report, the probation officer had recommended four years.

Lee was on probation when Officer Christopher Wilson was killed in a shootout at an apartment Oct. 27. Police say Lee killed his girlfriend and himself during the standoff.

Sontag did not respond to a request for comment.
