HOWELL, Mich. - A man charged by the Michigan attorney general's office with a series of shootings on and off Interstate 96 a year ago will stand trial early next year in Livingston County.

A Jan. 13 trial date was set during a court hearing Friday for Raulie Casteel.

Casteel faces attempted murder among 60 charges in Oakland County linked to shootings in Commerce Township and Wixom. The 44-year-old is to stand trial in that case in November.

The AG's office is prosecuting Casteel on terrorism and other charges in Livingston County.

He's accused in two-dozen random shootings in a four-county area in October 2012.

Defense attorney Douglas Mullkoff said Friday his client has decided not to seek an insanity defense. Mullkoff previously said Casteel has been diagnosed as having a delusional disorder.
