Portland train attack suspect: 'No heroes in this case'

Returns to court for brief appearance

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The man accused of killing two passengers and wounding a third on a Portland train returned to court for a brief hearing in which he told spectators: "Remember, there are no heroes in this case."

Jeremy Christian said nothing else Tuesday as Multnomah County Judge Cheryl Albrecht scheduled a bail hearing for October 20.

Christian has pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder, attempted murder and other charges.

Prosecutors say Christian boarded the light-rail train May 26 and yelled hateful comments at two black teenage girls, one of whom was wearing an Islamic head covering called a hijab.

They say he then turned his attention to three men, stabbing each of them in the neck. The men have described as heroes for confronting Christian.
