    Police saw Martin driving the truck of one of the victims. He then led police on a chase and broke into a home while a woman was showering. The woman was reportedly unharmed. Martin jumped out of a second-story window from the home into the backyard. He was then apprehended and bitten by a K-9 and escorted to an ambulance on a stretcher.

    Martin was detained for a mental health evaluation on Tuesday, police said.

    Triple-murder trial for former Rays prospect Brandon Martin scheduled for September


    The triple-murder trial for former Tampa Bay Rays prospect Brandon Martin is scheduled to start Sept. 25 in Riverside County Superior Court.

    The trial is expected to last at least 60 days, according to court records.

    Martin, a supplemental first-round draft pick of the Rays in June 2011, is charged with bludgeoning his father and two other men to death with a baseball bat in September 2015. Martin pleaded not guilty.

    During a hearing last week, Judge Michael B. Donner found Martin “has no financial resources whatsoever” and doesn’t have the ability to pay for defense counsel without public assistance.

    Judge Bambi J. Moyer found Martin mentally competent to stand trial last year. Prosecutors intend to seek the death penalty if he’s convicted.
