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.

The Duluth News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/t0Yj4o) that charges are expected to be filed Monday in St. Louis County District Court, which will handle the case.

The suspect's father, Gary Schlienz, told the newspaper his son is remorseful but has no memory of what happened. He says his son told him he left the courthouse after the verdict intending to get a gun out of his truck and shoot himself.
