Alleged airport shooter appears in court

    Miami, Florida (KINY) Another federal court date today for the Alaska man accused of killing five people and wounding six in a Florida airport shooting rampage.

    Esteban Santiago, 27, has been the study of a mental health competency exam.  His lawyers have argued that Mr. Santiago suffers from schizophrenia but is able to stand trial.   Today's hearing is likely to reveal an update on his mental condition.  US Attorneys also are up against a deadline to decide whether they will seek the death penalty in the case.

    Santiago pled not guilty to 22 different charges for the January 6 shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. 

    Trial has been delayed until June for an Alaska man accused of killing five people and wounding six in a Florida airport shooting rampage.

    A Miami federal judge Monday pushed back the trial date to June 11. The trial was set for Jan. 22, but prosecutors say the Justice Department needs more time to decide whether to seek the death penalty.
