Attorney for Terrance Hough Will Challenge Intent in Fireworks Slayings

CLEVELAND (AP) - A Cleveland firefighter facing a possible death penalty in the shooting deaths of three people in an apparent dispute over July Fourth fireworks is planning his legal defense.

Today the attorney for 35-year-old Terrance Hough (huhf) says the defense will challenge the prosecution claim that the attack was planned. Attorney John Hildebrand says Hough apparently snapped and never left his home planning to kill anyone.

Hough was indicted yesterday on three counts of aggravated murder and two counts of attempted murder. He will be arraigned Friday.

Hildebrand says Hough's wife and children haven't returned to their home and probably will move out of their neighborhood.
