LOS ANGELES (AP) - A man charged with attempted murder in the stabbings of three homeless people who were left with notes labeled "death warrants" has pleaded not guilty.
Courtney Anthony Robinson is being held on $3 million bail and his next hearing is scheduled for Aug. 6. He entered his plea in Superior Court on Wednesday.
Robinson turned himself in after police appealed to the public for help in locating him. He is suspected of stabbing three homeless people in the back earlier this month as they were sleeping. All survived.
The attacks occurred in downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and Santa Monica.
Santa Barbara police are investigating whether he is linked to two recent knife attacks of homeless men in that city.
Police say Robinson, 37, is a drifter from Florida.
