KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The Latest on a court hearing to determine if Jason Dalton goes to trial for the fatal shootings of six people in Michigan (all times local):
A Michigan man accused of killing six people and wounding two others in between picking up fares for Uber will watch a key court hearing from jail when it resumes.
Jason Dalton was dragged out of a Kalamazoo courtroom by deputies Friday morning after loud outbursts and a strange reference to people with "black bags." Tiana Carruthers, one of the two survivors of the Feb. 20 attacks, sobbed on the witness stand.
A judge must decide if there's probable cause to send Dalton to trial on charges of murder and attempted murder. The hearing resumes at noon.
Prosecutors say he carried out the attacks in between picking up and dropping off Uber passengers. Police have quoted Dalton as saying a "devil figure" on Uber's app was controlling him during the shootings.
