(May 22, 2019 / JNS) John Earnest, the 19-year-old man charged with shooting and killing congregant Lori Gilbert-Kaye, 60, and wounding three people, including senior Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, at Chabad of Poway in Southern California during Shabbat-morning services on April 27, was indicted on 113 federal counts.
He has also been charged for setting fire to a mosque in a nearby California town.
Earnest has been charged by both federal and state prosecutors, neither of whom have decided whether to ask for the death penalty were the suspect convicted.
He is scheduled to be arraigned on the new indictment on June 4.
Earlier this month, Earnest pleaded not guilty to federal hate crimes.
