NOVI, Mich. (AP) - A judge has ordered a man charged in a shooting spree that targeted motorists in southeastern Michigan to undergo forensic competency and criminal responsibility examinations.
Novi District Court Judge Brian MacKenzie ordered the exam on Wednesday over the objections of Raulie Casteel's lawyers.
The 43-year-old Casteel appeared in the Novi courtroom. His previous court appearances had come via a video link from jail.
Casteel is charged with 60 counts, including multiple counts of assault with intent to murder, in connection with shootings in Wixom and Oakland County's Commerce Township.
He's also charged with six counts in a single case in Livingston County, where he's to appear for a court hearing later Wednesday.
Defense attorneys have described their client as a married, college-educated man with no criminal history.
