Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Alex Ray Charfauros, who is accused of attempting to collect unemployment benefits while in jail, is to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. Charfauros is the probationer San Diego police were checking on when an officer was fatally shot at a Skyline apartment Oct. 27. Charfauros admitted violating probation and will be sentenced for that at a later date.

This is the latest information. The original story is below.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Sentencing was scheduled Friday for a probationer who authorities were checking on when a San Diego police officer was fatally shot at a Skyline apartment seven weeks ago.

Probation officers and federal marshals went to the second-story apartment in the 400 block of South Meadowbrook Drive the night of Oct. 27, looking for Alex Ray Charfauros, 26. The search touched off a series of events that led to 50-year-old Officer Christopher Wilson being shot in the head.

Charfauros, who did not fire the fatal shot, later admitted violating his probation for a 2008 DUI causing injury.

The night of the shooting someone slammed the door to the apartment on law enforcement, who in turn forced their way in and arrested Charfauros.

Another man - later identified as fugitive Holim Lee, 30 - ran into a back bedroom and fired shots when officers kicked in that door, fatally wounding Wilson, police said.

During a police standoff that ensued, Lee committed suicide by shooting himself, as did his girlfriend, 27-year-old Lucky Xayasene, according to the county coroner's office.

Wilson, a former Navy man and divorced father of two who lived in Tierrasanta, was a 17-year veteran of the San Diego Police Department. He had earned widespread respect among community members and colleagues alike for his commitment to the well-being of those living in the crime-plagued neighborhoods he patrolled in the city's southeastern reaches.

Wilson was the first on-duty law enforcement officer slain in San Diego County in nearly four years.
