Two charged in stabbing of Glass

Two parolees were charged with the stabbing death of sound producer Robert J. Glass, authorities said Tuesday. They are being held without bail.

John Ramirez, 26, and Christopher Troy Bradford, 24, of L.A. were arrested Friday by San Joaquin County sheriff’s deputies and turned over to L.A. police on Saturday.

They were charged with murder, armed robbery and a special allegation of murder during a robbery, which could bring the death penalty if convicted, said D.A.’s spokesman Mike Botula.

Glass was an acquaintance ofRamirez and may have let him into his apartment, where he was found stabbed to death on July 21.

Glass, 53, shared an Oscar with three others for the 1982 “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.”

Ramirez and Bradford were unemployed and on parole — Ramirez for a grand theft auto conviction, and Bradford for a burglary conviction.
