Man Charged in Wisconsin Shootings
(2008-08-20)
(wgvu) - MARINETTE, Wis. (AP) - An Upper Peninsula man charged in a
shooting rampage that killed three teenage swimmers at a river on
the Wisconsin-Michigan border has been ordered to stand trial.
Scott J. Johnson of Kingsford, Mich., waived his right to a
preliminary hearing during a brief court appearance Wednesday. A
judge set a Sept. 5 hearing for the 38-year-old Johnson to enter a
plea to three counts of first-degree intentional homicide.
Johnson's attorney says his client may plead insanity.
Prosecutors say Johnson went to the Menominee River on July 31
and opened fire on a group of swimmers, killing three and injuring
one.
He remains in jail in Wisconsin on a $3 million cash bail.
