A date to choose a jury for the man known as "El Diablo" has been set.

Jacob Esparza has been getting psychological help since an evaluation showed he had a mental disorder.

His trial was postponed a couple months ago because he was deemed incompetent to stand trial.

Esparza is accused of sending out threats online against West Texas officers and their families back in November.

Jury selection for the case will start on July 16.
