HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - Jurors have finished their first day of deliberations in the case of a Michigan man accused of shooting at other vehicles over a period of days two years ago.
The jury spent four hours Tuesday deliberating the case against Raulie Casteel. He is charged with terrorism and assault with the intent to commit murder.
Jurors will resume deliberations Wednesday by listening to an audio recording of Casteel's testimony from the trial.
Casteel testified that he fired at vehicles because he thought they were part of a government conspiracy against him. He says he was trying to back them off, and never meant to hurt anyone. He now receives psychiatric treatment.
No one was seriously injured, but the shootings terrified those living in the Interstate 96 corridor, where the attacks happened.
