Jury Pool Discussed for Chardon Shooting Trial
CHARDON, Ohio — The student accused of killing three of his classmates at Chardon High School was in court on Saturday morning as the jury pool was discussed.
The proceedings lasted for about an hour as a number of categories were considered for why a potential juror would not be able to serve.
Those included conditions such as physical limitations, health concerns, other hardships, and school and work demands.
T.J. Lane, 18, is accused of opening fire at Chardon High School on Feb. 27. Three students were killed, two were wounded, and one was grazed by a bullet.
Nick Walczak, who was paralyzed in the shooting spree, was in attendance on Saturday.
Though he was 17 at the time, Lane is charged as an adult with aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder and felonious assault.
He entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity and has remained in custody since his arrest.
His trial is scheduled to begin on Jan. 14.
