GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A 16-year-old boy charged with stabbing 20 students and a security guard at his western Pennsylvania high school was granted a furlough to attend a funeral home visitation for his grandmother.

The order signed by a Westmoreland County judge allowed Alex Hribal , of Murrsyville, to attend the visitation  Wednesday at a Mount Pleasant funeral home.

Sheriff’s deputies guarded Hribal during the visit and immediately return him to a county juvenile detention center where he’s been jailed since the attacks April 9 at Franklin Regional High school.

Another judge has scheduled a hearing Sept. 26 on a defense attorney’s request to have Hribal moved to a secure mental health facility while he awaits trial either as a juvenile or an adult.
