Charges expected Monday in courthouse shooting


DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Charges are expected Monday against a Grand Marais (muh-RAY') man convicted on a sex charge who's jailed in the shooting of the prosecutor and a witness in his case.

Forty-two-year-old Daniel Schlienz (SHLINZ) is accused of opening fire Thursday on Cook County Attorney Tim Scannell and witness Greg Thompson shortly after a jury found Schlienz guilty last Thursday. They're recovering from their wounds.
