CHARDON, Ohio (AP) — The trial of an Ohio teenager charged in a school shooting rampage that killed three students has been delayed until Jan. 14 while his attorneys prepare an insanity defense.
The trial of 18-year-old T.J. Lane had been scheduled for Nov. 26 in Chardon east of Cleveland, but a judge has now pushed back the trial at the request of Lane's attorneys.
Defense attorney Ian Friedman confirmed the postponement to The Plain Dealer (bit.ly/UrxWEN).
Lane's attorneys have said he suffers from hallucinations, psychosis and fantasies.
Lane faces a maximum sentence of life in prison without parole if convicted of the shootings Feb. 27 in the Chardon High School cafeteria.
