A trial is scheduled to resume Tuesday for a man charged with firing his gun randomly at vehicles along Interstate 96 in Michigan.

Testimony took place this week in the case of 44-year-old Raulie Casteel, who is contesting terrorism and assault charges in connection with the two dozen shootings in late 2012. Police say they matched his gun to bullet fragments recovered from victims' vehicles in four counties. One person suffered a minor injury.

On Thursday, Loriann Arthur identified Casteel as the man who shot her vehicle as he passed her in Ingham County in October 2012. She says she saw Casteel laughing.

Casteel's lawyer has said his client wasn't trying to hurt anyone.

Casteel pleaded no contest in November to related charges in Oakland County and is awaiting sentencing.
