The decision was made by San Diego district attorney Bonnie Dumanis.

Huynh is accused of sexually assaulting and killing Dane Williams of Huntington Beach in January of 2008.

He's also accused of sodomizing a second intoxicated man in a separate incident.

Huynh's trial is set to begin in January.
