Court appearance for I-96 shooting suspect Raulie Casteel

HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A man charged by the Michigan attorney general's office with a series of shootings on and off Interstate 96 last fall has a court appearance scheduled in Livingston County.

The hearing for Raulie Casteel is set for Friday before Circuit Judge David Reader.

In a separate but related case in Oakland County, Casteel faces attempted murder among 60 charges linked to shootings in Commerce Township and Wixom. The 44-year-old defendant is set to stand trial in that case in November.

The AG's office is prosecuting Casteel on terrorism and other charges in Livingston County.

He's accused in two-dozen random shootings in a four-county area in October. One man was hurt.

Defense attorneys say Casteel is married with no criminal history and has been diagnosed as having a delusional disorder.
