ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The judge in the case of the man charged with killing five people at a Maryland newspaper says 300 potential jurors are coming to court late this week to answer a questionnaire in a preliminary step ahead of next month's jury selection.

The judge on Tuesday outlined those plans in the case of Jarrod Ramos, who has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges in the Capital Gazette shootings.

Ramos also pleaded not criminally responsible under Maryland's version of an insanity defense.
