T.J. Lane, the suspect in the Chardon High School shooting, came from a troubled family, according to court records.

CHARDON, Ohio -- Newly released court records underscore the troubled family life of a 17-year-old Ohio boy charged in a school shooting rampage that killed three students.

Records released in Chardon say T.J. Lane's father challenged his paternity in 1995, but tests showed there was a 99 percent chance he's the father.

That year, the father asked for temporary custody because the toddler's mother was in jail for violating probation on a domestic violence charge.

He's facing a hearing next month on whether he will be tried as an adult on aggravated murder charges in the Feb. 27 attack. His lawyer has said Lane's family is "devastated" by the shootings.
