CHARDON, Ohio — Attorneys for T.J. Lane have filed two new motions trying to get comments he made to police after the shooting at Chardon High School thrown out of court.

Those statements, captured during recorded phone conversations, include Lane admitting to being the gunman and shooting his classmates.

His attorney says his statements violate Lane’s constitutional rights.

The motions were filed in Geauga County Common Pleas Court on Monday afternoon.

Lane is accused of shooting six students in the cafeteria of Chardon High School back on Feb. 27.  Three of the students died.
