A former Marine charged with murdering four homeless men and two others in Orange County will face trial.

Itzcoatl Ocampo, 23, appeared in court in Santa Ana Friday for a brief hearing. His defense attorney says his trial has been scheduled for September 10.

Earlier this week, Ocampo was placed under 24-hour observation at the county jail after he slammed his head on the toilet seat in his cell.

Ocampo's lawyer says he did it to stop the voices inside his head.
