As the funerals of victims of the mass shooting in Newtown Connecticut continue this week, the suspect in another shooting here in Ohio is preparing an insanity defense for his trial that starts in less than a month.

Eighteen-year-old T.J. Lane is charged with killing three people and wounding three others after opening fire in the Chardon High School cafeteria. On Wednesday, Lane was in court with his attorney and several family members to make the case that recordings of those family members talking among themselves at the Chardon police station be excluded as evidence.
