Ohio records: shooting suspect had troubled family

Published:

CHARDON, Ohio (AP) -- Newly released court records underscore the troubled family life of a 17-year-old Ohio boy charged in a school shooting rampage that killed three students.

Records released in Chardon say T.J. Lane's father challenged his paternity in 1995 but tests showed there was a 99 percent chance he is the father.

That year, the father asked for temporary custody because the toddler's mother was in jail for violating probation on a domestic violence charge.

The (Willoughby) News-Herald (http://bit.ly/yFdCFG) says the judge who released the records Tuesday must decide whether to release any social-service agency records that might be available on Lane.

Lane is facing a hearing next month on whether he will be tried as an adult on aggravated murder charges in the Feb. 27 attack.
