LIVE BLOG: TJ Lane Trial to be Delayed
CHARDON, Ohio — The teenager accused of carrying out a deadly shooting at Chardon High School last February was back in court Monday morning.
Monday’s appearance was supposed to be 18-year-old T.J. Lane’s final pretrial hearing; but last week, both the prosecution and the defense asked the judge for a continuance in the case.
Judge David Fuhry granted that request on Monday. A meeting will be held later this week to determine a new trial date, which was initially scheduled for January 14.
Lane, who was 17 at the time of the shootings, is charged as an adult with aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder and felonious assault.
He is accused of killing classmates Daniel Parmertor, 16, Demetrius Hewlin, 17, and Russell King, Jr., 17, and wounding three others at Chardon High School on Feb. 27.
