SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - A San Diego man charged with impaling five homeless people with railroad spikes to the head, killing three of his victims, was declared mentally competent on Monday to stand trial and was ordered to return to court on April 4 for arraignment.

Jon David Guerrero, 40, accused of setting two of his victims on fire, is charged with murder, attempted murder and arson in a crime spree last summer that terrorized the sprawling homeless community of California's second-largest city.
