Man jailed on other charges after attack kills deputy

Pinal County Sheriff's Office

A man who was the subject of a manhunt in the fatal beating of a Maricopa County sheriff’s deputy has been released from a hospital and booked into jail on charges stemming from earlier incidents.

Clinton Hurley was booked into the Pinal County jail and appeared remotely Wednesday before a Maricopa County Superior Court commissioner. A court document said Hurley wasn’t eligible for release because he’s accused of violating probation. Hurley was hospitalized late Saturday after being shot during an encounter with a Tonopah homeowner. He was sought much of Saturday after Deputy Juan Ruiz was attacked and left unconscious. Ruiz died Monday.
