Guam - Only four of the fourteen victims in the tragedy in Tumon are seeking restitution from their assailant, Chad Desoto.

Although Desoto did not appear before Judge Anita Sukola Tuesday morning, how much he owes his victims was discussed.

According to prosecutor Phil Tydingco, the four individuals are requesting a total of $13,700 for expenses to include medical, travel, and funeral arrangements.

As for the remaining victims, Tydingco notes they either didn't respond or didn't request any restitution.

Last year Desoto was found guilty of aggravated murder and attempted aggravated murder.

Back in February 2013 Desoto drove his car down a crowded street. He crashed his car into the ABC Store underneath the Outrigger, jumped out, and began stabbing people randomly. He killed three and injured 11 others.

His next court hearing is set for March 31.
