A hearing this morning for admitted Chardon High School shooter TJ Lane.  Lane admitted to the February 27 shooting, but offered no motive. 17-year-old Russell King, Jr., 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor and 16-year-old Demetrius Hewlin were killed. 17-year-old Nick Walczak remains paralyzed from the waist down. 18-year-old Joy Rickers and a 6th, unidentified victim were treated and released from the hospital. Lane may enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.  Earlier this month, the judge denied a request by Lane's attorney to delay today's hearing to give doctors more time to evaluate the teen.

General Motors has issued a recall notice to owners of various GM and Isuzu vehicles due to a potential fire hazard. A statement made by GM indicated the recall involves about 250,000 mid-sized SUVs sold in 20 states and Washington. The problem is related to fluid that can enter the driver's door module and lead to a short in the circuit board. GM said the malfunction could cause the power locks and windows to fail and, in very rare cases, start a fire. No known crashes or injuries are related to the issue.  Click here to see list of vehicle models recalled.
