Suspect in Murder of Oceanside Police Officer in Court

Posted: Updated:
Opening statements are scheduled to begin Monday in the trial of a man suspected of murdering Oceanside police officer Dan Bessant.

Prosecutors say Meki Gaono was one of three gang members who fired at the officer during a traffic stop back in December 2006.

Penifoti Taeotui was convicted of first-degree murder in Bessant's death in November 2008.

Charges were dismissed against a third suspect after a judge ruled there wasn't enough evidence for him to stand trial.
