PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -- A pretrial hearing has been scheduled for a man accused of a series of shootings on and off Interstate 96 in southeast Michigan.
Raulie Casteel appeared Thursday for an arraignment in Oakland County Circuit Court. The Oakland Press of Pontiac reports (http://bit.ly/ZqsOQn ) an April 4 pretrial was set.
Casteel earlier waived a hearing to determine if prosecutors have enough evidence for trial. He faces 60 charges in the case, including attempted murder, linked to shootings in Commerce Township and in Wixom.
Casteel lived in Wixom, 40 miles northwest of Detroit.
Two dozen random shootings occurred last fall in a four-county area. One man was injured.
In a separate but related case, the Michigan attorney general's office is prosecuting Casteel on terrorism, attempted murder and other charges in Livingston County.
