Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
CHARDON, Ohio (AP) - Attorneys for a teenager charged in the school shooting deaths of three students are challenging Ohio's law on insanity defense.
The move was mentioned briefly in a motion filed Monday asking the trial judge in Chardon to let attorneys for 18-year-old T.J. Lane detail their arguments in a sealed filing to be kept secret.
The defense says confidentiality is necessary because it covers evidence to be presented at Lane's trial scheduled Jan. 14. The defense says confidentiality would avoid additional pretrial publicity.
Lane faces up to life in prison without chance of parole if convicted in the attack last Feb. 27 at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland.
There was no immediate elaboration from the defense or comment from prosecutors. Messages seeking comment were emailed to both sides.
