CHARDON -- Two years after the Chardon High School shooting, convicted shooter TJ Lane's appeal case remains active.

Lane's attorney will go before a panel of appellate judges at 9:30 a.m. March 26 in the Geauga County Courthouse to appeal his sentence.

Thomas Lane III, known as TJ, was 17 at the time of the shootings so he was not eligible for the death penalty.

On March 19, 2013, he was sentenced to three life terms without parole for shooting and killing three of the victims and wounding three others.

His Kent-based appellate attorney, Michael A. Partlow, filed the appeal on April 18, 2013 with the 11th District Court of Appeals.

The appeals judges will be hearing oral arguments from the Geauga County Prosecutor's office and his attorney.

Lane, who is now 19, is not expected at the hearing.
