NORFOLK, Va. - L.C. Grant III, the man accused of fatally stabbing two men in Norfolk in 2020 appeared in a Norfolk courtroom Tuesday for a mental examination hearing.

According to an official with the Norfolk Commonwealth Attorney's office, restoration services were ordered Tuesday and Grant's next examination hearing is scheduled for April 5, 2022.

Prosecutors later obtained direct indictments on six felony counts from a Norfolk grand jury on June 2, 2021.

Grant has now been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, one count of carjacking, two counts of stabbing during the commission of a felony and one count of credit card theft.
