HOWELL, Mich. — Jurors deciding the case of a man who shot at nearly two-dozen vehicles along a Michigan highway corridor have listened to his testimony again.

The Livingston County jury broke for lunch Wednesday after privately listening to Raulie Casteel’s testimony for more than two hours. He’s charged with terrorism and attempted murder.

Deliberations began Tuesday but were suspended while Casteel’s testimony was played for the jury at the court building in Howell, 30 miles east of Lansing.

The 44-year-old Casteel says he fired at vehicles because he thought they were part of a government conspiracy against him.

No one was seriously hurt, but the shootings scared those living near Interstate 96.
