HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - A man suspected in a shooting spree that targeted motorists along the Interstate 96 corridor in four southeast Michigan counties is facing fresh charges, including terrorism.

Forty-three-year-old Raulie Casteel, of Wixom, appeared on a video link during a brief arraignment hearing Thursday afternoon in Livingston County's 53rd District Court in Howell.

Casteel waived his right to a hearing within 14 days on whether there's enough evidence to try him. Authorities are awaiting the results of a mental competency examination.

The charges filed last week came after Attorney General Bill Schuette took over the cases at local prosecutors' request. Casteel still faces separate charges in Oakland County.

Defense attorney Charles Groh says the fresh charges are nothing new and are based on allegations already made by authorities in Livingston County.
