LOS ANGELES (AP) — Attorneys for a man accused of stabbing sleeping homeless people want him to be evaluated to see if he is mentally fit to stand trial.

A judge Monday scheduled a mental competency hearing for Aug. 20 in the case of 37-year-old Courtney Anthony Robinson.

Robinson is accused of attacking three homeless people in downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and Santa Monica in July and leaving paper "death warrants" with each victim, though all three survived. He has pleaded not guilty.

Robinson called 911 and surrendered to police July 20 after wanted flyers with his photo began circulating in LA.

Robinson is accused of leaving the knives in the backs of each victim and leaving warrants signed with his alias, David Ben Keyes.
