URBANA, Ohio (WDTN) — The Judge in the case of the shooting at West Liberty-Salem High School ruled Tuesday recordings that were made of Serna that contain a confession will be allowed at trial.
The attorneys representing Ely Serna did not agree with that ruling.
Serna has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the case.
Authorities say Serna opened fire inside West Liberty-Salem High School in January 2017. Two students were wounded in the shooting, including one who suffered serious injuries.
A judge previously ruled Serna would be tried as an adult but in January, a judge declined to send Serna’s case back to juvenile court. Serna’s attorney says the defense will call at least 35 witnesses in the case.
