Guam - The date is set as Chad DeSoto will go to trial on June 9th.

As he appeared in the superior court this morning, the court noted DeSoto has asserted his right to speedy trial as of Friday last week.

Judge Anita Sukola announced, "The court issued its amended trial scheduling order on March 4, 2014 setting this jury trial for June 9th and again falls squarely on the 45th day. And for those reasons the court will see you back on that day on June 9 for jury selection."

Desoto is accused of driving a car down a sidewalk in Tumon in February 2013. He ran over several tourists in his path. He eventually got out of the car and began stabbing people. Three people died and eleven others were injured. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental illness, disease or defect. He has undergone two separate psychological evaluations, but the findings are not available to the public.
