Husband charged with Daly City woman’s murder
May 06, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Daniel Thomas

The husband of a Daly City woman found brutally beaten to death in her home last Thursday was charged Monday with her murder.

Daniel Bryan Thomas, 65, appeared in court Monday afternoon on the single charge but put off his arraignment until May 8 to try retaining the private attorney handling his pending domestic violence case against his estranged wife.

Just before 8 a.m. May 1, Bryan went to the neighboring home to report his wife being unresponsive and needing help, according to prosecutors.

The neighbors found Ruby Grim, 65, dead inside the home on the 400 block of Florence Street and called police.

Grim died a “horrible beating death” with major trauma to her head and entire body, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Thomas was questioned and arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, violating a domestic violence restraining order and violating parole. On Monday, prosecutors filed the murder charge.

Thomas has prior domestic violence cases involving his wife including one in August 2013 that was scheduled for trial next month. In 2012, Grim filed for a domestic violence restraining order.
