A man accused of stabbing two homeless people as they slept in the summer of 2012 was convicted by a Los Angeles jury this week on three counts of attempted murder after he stabbed three transients in that city and left rambling “death warrants” at each scene. Courtney Anthony Robinson’s defense attorney argued he was delusional and “acting under the orders of God.” It’s unclear if and when Robinson will be prosecuted for his alleged Santa Barbara crimes.
