Attorneys for a teenager accused of fatally shooting three students and wounding three others at a northeastern Ohio high school are asking a judge to allow him to visit with mental health experts in jail.
The Willoughby News-Herald reports that T.J. Lane's attorneys have filed a motion asking that doctors be able to visit him in the Geauga County jail to help prepare his defense.
Lane was recently transferred from a juvenile facility to the adult jail because he turned 18.
Lane is being tried as an adult and faces a maximum penalty of life in prison without parole if convicted of the shootings Feb. 27 in the Chardon High School cafeteria. His trial is scheduled for Nov. 26.
