Sheriff’s Department to have input on motion in T.J. Lane murder case
A judge in the case of accused Chardon High shooter T.J. Lane ruled Tuesday that the Geauga County Sheriff’s department and a local detention center will be able to provide input on a defense motion to photograph a jail and the detention center.
Geauga County Common Pleas Judge David L. Fuhry accepted the State’s request for participation from the Sheriff’s department. “The court believes that direct contact between those officers might be the most efficient way to proceed. If an impasse develops that would be addressed at that time,” Fuhry said.
Lane is accused of opening fire in his high school cafeteria, killing three students and wounding three others. He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and faces a maximum penalty of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
