HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A man accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend may be forced to watch his trial from a holding cell.

Alvin Marshall's trial is scheduled to start Monday. Several measures have been put in place following his frequent outbursts during pre-trial hearings, attorneys and Henrico Sheriff's deputies told the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

If Marshall is not in the courtroom, a closed-circuit television has been set up for him to view the trial from the nearby holding cell.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that at one point, Marshall was tied to a chair and shackled with several deputies surrounding him, following one of the outbursts. Marshall has been diagnosed with a severe personality disorder.

Marshall is accused of killing ex-girlfriend and single mother Tiffany Green in March 2012. According to Henrico Police, Marshall gained entry to her apartment and shot her at least eight times.
