HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A man suspected in a shooting spree that targeted motorists along the Interstate 96 corridor in four Michigan counties is scheduled for arraignment on a new set charges that include including terrorism.
Forty-three-year-old Raulie Casteel of Wixom is scheduled to appear Thursday afternoon in Livingston County's 53rd District Court, Howell.
The charges filed last week came after Attorney General Bill Schuette announced he was taking over the cases at the request of prosecutors in Livingston, Ingham and Shiawassee counties.
Defense lawyer Defense attorney Charles Groh says there's nothing new in the fresh charges.
Casteel also faces charges in Oakland County. The attorney general's charges supersede charges filed earlier in Livingston County.
