Man accused of shooting 6 in 2 states plans insanity defense

WILMINGTON, Del. -- Court filings say the man accused of shooting five people in Maryland and another in Delaware on the same day is planning an insanity defense for his Delaware trial.

The News Journal of Wilmington reported Wednesday that Radee Prince's attorney, Michael Heyden, told the courts last week about the insanity defense. Police say the Delaware shooting immediately followed Prince opening fire at his Maryland workplace on Oct. 18, killing three people and injuring two others.
