My own commenters scooped me on this one. You guys rock.
A district court judge has ruled John Jason McLaughlin was not insane when he shot and killed two classmates at Rocori High School in September 2003.
Judge Michael Kirk delivered his verdict Tuesday. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 30.
Kirk said it was clear McLaughlin suffered “some sort of mental impairment,” according to The Associated Press. He added, “Numerous facts laid out in this case point to the defendant knowing his actions were morally wrong.”
McLaughlin, who was charged as an adult, could face life in prison without the possibility of parole.
