Defense in Ohio school shootings files motion

CHARDON

Attorneys for a teenager charged in the school shooting deaths of three students are challenging Ohio’s law on insanity defense.

The move was mentioned briefly in a motion filed Monday asking the trial judge in Chardon to let attorneys for 18-year-old T.J. Lane detail their arguments in a sealed filing to be kept secret.

The defense says confidentiality is necessary because it covers evidence to be presented at Lane’s trial scheduled Jan. 14. The defense says confidentiality would avoid additional pretrial publicity.

A defense attorney declined to elaborate or comment on the filing. The prosecutor didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Lane faces up to life in prison without chance of parole if convicted in the attack last Feb. 27 at Chardon High School.
