Attorneys in both sides of the Chardon High School shooting case want psychiatric testing for the 18-year old accused of killing three students in the school's cafeteria.
NewsChannel 5 reports the request will determine if accused shooter TJ Lane is competent to stand trial.
The request was filed last Friday by Lane's attorneys and was backed by the prosecution.
In 2012, before the case went to adult court, a juvenile court judge ruled Lane was mentally competent despite evidence he suffered from psychosis, hallucinations, and fantasies
No trial date has been set as of yet.
Prosecutors allege Lane, who was 17 at the time of the incident, fired 10 shots at a group of students in the Chardon High School cafeteria in February of last year. Lane was at the school waiting for a bus to take him to his alternative school.
