FULLERTON, Calif. -- Four officers who have not been charged in the killing of a 37-year-old mentally ill homeless man will remain on paid leave from the Fullerton Police Department pending two other investigations.

Chief Kevin Hamilton said Wednesday the four officers would remain on leave as the FBI conducts a civil rights investigation and the Police Department does an internal probe.

Two of their colleagues, Officer Manuel Ramos and Cpl. Jay Cicinelli, were charged Wednesday in the death of Kelly Thomas after his violent arrest.
