FAIRFIELD — One of two men authorities believe killed a Suisun City man last summer in rural Vacaville was in court Monday, where he was arraigned on a charge of felony homicide and a trio of drug offenses.

Sergio L. Perez, 27, is suspected in the execution-style killing Jimmy Degros the night of July 9, 2013, at Perez’s home on Steiger Hills Road. He has pleaded not guilty.

Sheriff’s deputies received a call at around 8:40 p.m. of shots fired. They got there about 20 minute later and said they saw Perez driving from the home in his pickup truck. They found the body of Degros in the back of the pickup under a sheet of plywood.

He had been shot in the head.

Authorities said they found a sophisticated marijuana-growing operation inside the home, with hundreds of budding plants, 23 pounds of processed marijuana and nearly an ounce of cocaine.

Perez’s brother, Eriberto “Eddie” Perez, remains at large. He left the home in an old gold Cadillac, before deputies arrived. Fairfield police found the Cadillac a week later. Authorities believe Eriberto Perez may have fled to Oregon.

Anyone with information about Eriberto Perez is asked to call the Solano County Sheriff’s Office at 421-7090 or Solano County Crime Stoppers at 644-7867.

Sergio Perez was ordered to stand trial after a preliminary hearing April 17. He was ordered Monday to return to court June 17.
