Court date delayed for Loomis triple-murder defendant

-A +A
A Roseville man charged with murdering three people in Loomis made a brief appearance in a North Auburn courtroom Tuesday. Jeremy Ray Baker, 36, was in court for an early status conference but the court date was put off for a month. Prosecuting attorney David Tellman of the Placer County District Attorney’s Office told Placer Superior Court Judge Larry Gaddis that more time was needed for the process of gathering evidence and providing it to Baker’s defense attorney. Baker, who has shaved his head since his arrest, made a brief statement agreeing to put off the conference until July 26. Baker is charged with the May 28 shooting deaths of Nanette Florance, a Loomis resident with Parkinson’s disease, John Camara, 46, and Lawrence Fay, 49. The three were shot at a Rachel Lane residence and Baker was arrested two days later. Held without bail in jail, Baker is also charged with possession of a gun silencer. – Gus Thomson
