A Daly City man was ordered to stand trial Thursday for the beating death of his estranged wife in April, prosecutors said.
Daniel Thomas, 66, was ordered to stand trial by Judge Donald Ayoob for the death of Ruby Gim, 65. Gim was found dead in the bedroom of her Daly City home in the 400 block of Florence Street on April 30 at 7:40 a.m., according to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.
Thomas was found at the home despite having a restraining order to stay away from her. He had misdemeanor domestic violence charges pending against him. They had been together for 30 years.
Gim had been severely beaten and had multiple injuries all over her body, prosecutors said. Thomas pleaded not guilty to murder charges and has denied any responsibility for her injuries or death.
He is next due to appear in court on Dec. 30.
