Ohio School Shooting

Judge: Jurors will be sequestered for T.J. Lane murder trial


A judge ruled in an opinion made public Monday that jurors in the T.J. Lane murder case will be sequestered during deliberations.

Lane is accused of firing ten rounds in his Chardon High cafeteria, killing three fellow students and wounding three others.

Geauga County Common Pleas Judge David Fuhry issued the opinion last week. He also said jurors will be instructed that Lane isn’t eligible for the death penalty because he was 17-years-old at the time of the shooting.

Lane pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Attorneys will meet in Judge Fuhry’s chambers on Wednesday to discuss scheduling a new trial date.
