HOWELL, Mich. –

43-year-old Raulie Casteel will be back in court for the second time on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day Casteel was in a Oakland County courtroom, where his attorney waived a preliminary hearing and the judge ordered a psychiatric evaluation.

He is scheduled for a second preliminary hearing at 2:00 p.m. in Howell.

Last week, Casteel was arraigned on a total of 66 felony charges including attempted murder and various weapon charges.

He is accused of terrorizing drivers on and near I-96 in October.

Police say Casteel is responsible for 24 shootings in four Michigan Counties.

Casteel was arrested at his home in Wixom. Detectives say he was a stay at home dad with a young daughter.

His wife, father and stepmother have attended each court appearance to date.

We have a crew in the courtroom and will update you as this story develops.
