August 19, 2010, 10:46 AM
DEADWOOD, SD -
A judge has ruled that some evidence against a Deadwood man accused in a shooting that injured two of his neighbors will not be allowed at trial.
Judge Warren Johnson is excluding urinalysis results and information about marijuana police said they found in Terry Willis' home. The judge is allowing Willis' blood-alcohol test results.
Willis is accused of shooting Terry Steinbach and his adult son, Monte, on February 12. Terry Steinbach was shot in the wrist and his son in the abdomen. Police reports say Willis claimed his wife and dogs had been harassed by his upstairs neighbors.
Willis has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges including attempted murder. His trial is to start Monday.
