Judge: Jury in Chardon school shooting trial will be sequestered
CHARDON, OH (WOIO) -
A Geauga County judge ruled that the jury in the TJ Lane case will be sequestered while they are deliberating.
A hearing to decide on a trial date will be held on January 30.
Police say Lane entered the cafeteria at Chardon High School last February and opened fire. 17-year-old Russell King, Jr., 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor and 16-year-old Demetrius Hewlin were killed in the shooting. 17-year-old Nick Walczak remains paralyzed from the waist down. 18-year-old Joy Rickers and a 6th, unidentified victim were treated and released from the hospital.
Lane was recorded in a police cruiser after he was picked up and read his rights saying "I shot people." An officer asked why and he responded "I don't know."
