HAGATNA, Guam » A Guam man accused of killing three tourists and hurting 11 others in the tourist area of Tumon is expected to go on trial April 7.

Judge Anita Sukola today scheduled jury selection and trial for Chad De Soto, who is charged with three counts of aggravated murder and 11 counts of attempted aggravated murder.

De Soto is accused of driving his car onto the sidewalk of a busy tourist area, hitting pedestrians until the vehicle slammed into a wall. Prosecutors say he then got out and started stabbing bystanders inside the store.

De Soto has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental illness, disease or defect.

Sukola today ordered that two sealed, court-ordered psychiatric evaluations be made available to De Soto's attorney, Public Defender Eric Miller.
