Peter Robbins faces charges of stalking and threatening a former girlfriend and a plastic surgeon who gave her a boob job he apparently didn't care for.
San Diego prosecutors say Robbins repeatedly called and threatened his ex, telling her he would kill her and her son if she did not give back his dog and car.
Robbins is also accused of threatening a plastic surgeon.
He reportedly paid for his former girlfriend's breast enhancement and demanded the money back after they broke up.
He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday on Capitol Hill.
She exploded while answering tough questions from GOP lawmakers about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya.
The hearing went on for hours and Clinton got emotional a few times, saying she took the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, very personally.
The outgoing secretary of state also defended Susan Rice, passed over to be Clinton's successor after republicans accused Rice of misleading Americans in the days after the attack.
The ban on women in combat is over.

Military officials say some jobs may open as soon as this year.
Women currently constitute fourteen-and-a-half percent of the nation's 1.4 million active-duty military personnel.
