Scott Dekraai, the man accused in a deadly salon shooting in Seal Beach, faced murder charges in a Santa Ana courtroom Wednesday the day after he was indicted by a grand jury. He pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors say Huntington Beach resident Dekraai, 42, opened fire in Salon Meritage on October 12, killing seven people, including his ex-wife, and an eighth outside the building.

Dekraai and ex-wife Michelle Fournier were in a bitter custody battle. Dekraai is being held without bail.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
