HOWELL, Mich. (AP) -- A man suspected in a shooting spree that targeted motorists along the Interstate 96 corridor in four southeast Michigan counties is facing fresh charges including terrorism.
Forty-three-year-old Raulie Casteel of Wixom is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday afternoon in Livingston County's 53rd District Court, in 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 attorney Charles Groh says the charges are nothing new and are based on allegations already made by authorities in Livingston County.
The attorney general's charges replace the charges filed earlier in Livingston County.
Casteel still faces separate charges in Oakland County.
Howell is 35 miles east of Lansing.
