EDMONTON - An Edmonton man charged with killing two people and wounding others in a multiple stabbing at a grocery warehouse is to appear in court today.

Jayme Pasieka (JAY'-mee pah-SEE'-kah), who is 30, is in custody on charges of first-degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons offences.

Police have said a man with a knife in each hand and wearing a military-style vest, randomly started stabbing workers in a huge Loblaws complex on Feb. 28.

Pasieka, an employee at the warehouse, was quickly identified as a suspect and arrested later that day.

He appeared briefly in court two months ago but did not enter a plea.

Court documents show a psychologist had earlier determined Pasieka expressed paranoid ideas and a relative suggested he had schizophrenia.
