HOWELL, Mich. (AP) — Jurors deciding the case of a man who shot at nearly two-dozen vehicles along a Michigan highway corridor are getting the chance to hear his testimony again.

The Livingston County Circuit Court jury spent four hours Tuesday deliberating the case against Raulie Casteel. He's charged with terrorism and assault with the intent to commit murder.

They asked Judge David Reader to play back a recording of Casteel's testimony from Monday.

The judge agreed, and the playback began Wednesday morning. Reader says the entirety of the 44-year-old defendant's two-plus hours on the stand will be played.

Casteel testified that 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.
