School Shooter Wants New Trial

A high school shooter who killed three classmates and wounded five others is asking Kentucky's Supreme Court for a second chance at his case.

Michael Carneal, now 25, claims he was too mentally ill to plead guilty in 1998 to going into Heath High School in west Paducah and shooting eight students who were gathered for an informal prayer service.

He's serving a sentence of life without parole for at least 25 years for the Dec. 1, 1997 shooting that happened when he was 14.
