More Testing Ordered for TJ Lane
CHARDON, Ohio — A Geauga County judge has ordered accused Chardon High School shooter, T.J. Lane, to take additional testing to decide if he is competent to stand trial.
Lane was ruled competent to stand trial last year, but the case was later moved to Common Pleas Court.
Lane has already entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity. If convicted, he faces the possibility of life in prison without parole.
Lane, 18, is accused of fatally shooting three students and wounding three others at Chardon High School last February 27th. Lane was 17 years old at the time of the shootings. He is charged as an adult with several counts of aggravated murder, attempted murder and felonious assault.
The competence evaluation should be completed by his next court date of February 26.
