Dalton is accused of killing six people and seriously wounding two others in February. After his arrest he told police the ride-sharing app Uber had possessed him. Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Getting says given the evidence that Dalton carried out the shootings, the defense’s decision doesn’t surprise him.
