Three employees were killed in the attack -- a chef, the manager and the owner of the restaurant, who all died from their injuries.

Arthur Martunovich, 34, was arrested in the case and faces murder and hate crime charges. Prosecutors believe the motive was racial animosity toward Asian people.

Martunovich pleaded not guilty and is expected to have a mental health exam to see if he is fit to stand trial.
