OAKLAND — A former nursing student accused of killing six students and a receptionist at Oikos University earlier this year appeared in court Monday for a routine hearing and had his case continued until August.

One Goh, 43, appeared thinner that he did April 2, when he allegedly walked into the small, struggling university on Edgewater Drive and began shooting a .45-caliber handgun at students and staff.

Goh, who refused to eat when he was first booked into Santa Rita Jail, said nothing during his appearance but glanced several times at his father who was in the audience.

Relatives of some of the victims were also present. Everyone declined to comment after the appearance.

Goh is accused of killing Judith Seymour, 53, of San Jose; Lydia Sim, 21, of Hayward; Sonam Choedon, 33, of El Cerrito; Grace Kim, 23, of Union City; Doris Chibuko, 40, of San Leandro; Tshering Rinzing Bhutia, 38, of San Francisco, and Katleen Ping, 24, of Oakland.

Police say Goh was upset at the school because administrators refused to refund his tuition after he dropped out of school at the beginning of the school year.
