Court exam dates set for freeway shooting suspect

 HOWELL (AP) — Two preliminary examination dates have been set for a man charged with terrorism in a shooting spree that targeted motorists along a highway corridor in four Michigan counties.

A Howell District Court judge on Monday scheduled the first day of Raulie Casteel’s exam for March 27. Testimony will continue March 29, if necessary.
The preliminary hearing will determine whether there’s enough evidence to send the case to trial. Casteel earlier was found competent to stand trial.
The unemployed geologist is charged with intent to murder, terrorism and several gun crimes. He faces a similar set of charges in Oakland County.
Authorities haven’t said what they believe is the motive behind the two-dozen shootings in October across a broad swath of southern Michigan. Only one motorist was injured.
