T.J. Lane trial postponed again
Lawyers on both sides say they need more time to review new information

In The Region:

The trial of accused Chardon school shooter T-J Lane has been postponed for a third time.  

A Geauga County Judge granted a joint motion by the defense and prosecution Monday to delay the trial which was to start next Monday.  The attorneys say they need more time to review a large amount of newly discovered information.  But, no one is saying what that information is.  

Lane is accused of killing three students and wounding three others in the February 27th shooting.  Prosecutors say Lane admitted he fired the shots.  He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and faces life in prison without parole.  Life-long Chardon-area resident Scott Webster doesn’t want another trial delay.

"The trial should be over," Webster said. "When something happens in Cleveland it’s done and over with in three months. This is going on a year. This is just tax dollars getting spent. Tax dollars that could be spent on law enforcement, on fire department, on bigger, better projects than feeding this kid for another year."

The judge has not set a new trial date, but will hold a hearing on the matter later this month.  The trial was originally scheduled to begin in August. That date was moved to November, and postponed again to next Monday.
