RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer has been charged with murdering a Riverside police officer and special circumstances that could bring the death penalty.

Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach says Christopher Dorner is also charged with the attempted murder of another Riverside officer and two LAPD officers.
