A grand jury in Los Angeles on Thursday indicted former Glendale Fire Capt. John L. Orr, the arson investigator turned arsonist, on charges he murdered four people in a 1984 fire he allegedly set at a hardware store in South Pasadena.
Orr's trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 12.
At his arraignment Thursday, Orr pleaded not guilty to the charges. Orr also is charged with committing multiple murders, a special circumstance that could bring a death sentence.
