Fired Pomerado Hospital employee accused of making online threats pleads not guilty

SAN DIEGO - A fired Pomerado Hospital employee who allegedly threatened to kill former co-workers pleaded not guilty Tuesday to nine felony counts of making criminal threats.

Jelaan Ayinde Miles, 26, was ordered held on $1 million bail.

Detectives raided a home in the 2500 block of Fenton Parkway Thursday night, seizing computers and a firearm and arresting Miles.

Deputy District Attorney Adam Gordon told Judge David Szumowski on Tuesday that Miles, who was fired in December 2011, posted threatening messages three different times online, threatening to go on a killing spree at the hospital.

During their search, investigators found videos they say Miles made in which he shows off his mother's gun and a sword, according to the prosecutor.

Should he post bail, the judge ordered Miles to stay away from the hospital and five named employees.

A bail review was scheduled Friday and a preliminary hearing for May 6.
