Itzcoatl Ocampo, a 23-year-old Iraq War veteran accused of stabbing four homeless men to death in California, was charged Tuesday with four counts of murder, said Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas.
The four murder charges carry the special circumstances of multiple murders and lying in wait, the prosecutor said.
Rackauckas and representatives from the FBI, the county sheriff's office and the Anaheim police department held a news conference Tuesday to discuss legal issues concerning Ocampo.
"I'm not prepared to discuss a possible motive," Rackauckas said. "We know he had selected others" to kill, he added.
Ocampo was arrested Friday night after he allegedly stabbed a transient to death, Anaheim Police Sgt. Bob Dunn said.FULL STORY
