A Guam judge has ordered $2 million bail for a man accused of killing two Japanese visitors and injuring 12 others after he drove his car into pedestrians and went on a stabbing rampage in the U.S. territory's tourist district.
A Guam Superior Court magistrate judge on Wednesday appointed a public defender for 21-year-old Chad Ryan De Soto.
A video of court proceedings posted online by Pacific Daily News shows the prosecution saying De Soto committed "heinous, extreme" violence rarely seen in Guam, a U.S. territory and tropical island about 1,500 miles south of Tokyo.
Court documents posted by the newspaper allege De Soto used a knife to stab and kill two women, 81-year-old Kazuko Uehara and 29-year-old Rie Sugiyama.
The records say De Soto told police he wanted to hurt as many people as he could, first with his car and then with his knife.
