Victims Take The Stand Against Accused I-96 Shooter

Posted: Updated:

HOWELL, Mich. (WLNS) - The trial against the accused I-96 shooter, Raulie Casteel, continued Thursday with more witnesses taking the stand.

Casteel sat on and listened as victims took the stand, telling their side of the story after realizing their cars had all been shot at.

"I heard two gunshots in quick succession. I was alarmed, bewildered," remembers Stacy Banks, a victim of the shooter.

"I'd never been shot at before. I'd never had that experience. I didn't know what it was right off the bat. I don't think it sunk in for a while, let's put it that way," said howard Hester, whose car was also shot at.

The defense's cross examination was rather quick, in some cases, only one question and often focused on one specific detail. "Do you know what a side nine millimeter ejects," asked the prosecutor.

Due to weather conditions, many victims who were scheduled to testify couldn't make it to the courthouse, so they'll take the stand at a later date.

Casteel's trial is set to continue on Tuesday.
