A man charged in a shooting spree that targeted motorists along a highway corridor in four Michigan counties has been found competent to stand trial in Oakland County.

The findings were discussed during a hearing Thursday in Novi District Court.

Raulie Casteel faces a separate set of charges in Howell District Court, where the state attorney general's office has brought seven counts against the 43-year-old Wixom resident.

He was found competent for trial there during a hearing held Wednesday.

Casteel faces 60 counts in Oakland County, including assault with intent to murder. The AG's office brought a terrorism charge against him.

Authorities say the unemployed geologist shot at two-dozen cars along Interstate 96 in October.

Casteel lawyer Charles Groh says he's "pursuing all possible defenses" for his client.
