T.J. Lane listens to testimony in Geauga County Common Pleas Court on Thursday. He is accused of three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of felonious assault.
CHARDON, Ohio -- T.J. Lane told investigators hours after he ended the lives of three fellow students with gunfire in the Chardon High School cafeteria that he had goals, a plan to follow in life so that he could one day study the mind.
"I was in the process of applying to Lakeland (Community College), and I was going to go to -- transfer to whatever to become a psychologist," Lane said after he was arrested Feb. 27.
"Now, that's wasted."
Lane made the statement to Geauga County Sheriff's Detective Aaron Graley after Lane shot six students, three of whom died. As attorneys prepare for Lane's trial Jan. 14, details about the teen are emerging in court documents, offering a deeper picture of him.
