The lawyer for a man charged in a series of shootings on and off Interstate 96 in Michigan says his client will undergo an independent psychiatric examination.

Attorney Doug Mulkoff told Oakland County Circuit Judge Denise Langford Morris on Thursday that he was in the process of arranging the evaluation for Raulie Casteel.

Langford Morris approved a request for a pre-trial date, now set for May 30.

Casteel faces 60 charges, including attempted murder, linked to shootings in Commerce Township and Wixom.

Two dozen random shootings occurred last fall in a four-county area. One man was hurt.

In a separate but related case, the Michigan attorney general's office is prosecuting Casteel on terrorism and other charges in Livingston County.

Defense attorneys say Casteel is married with no criminal history.
