Appeal Planned After Charges Dismissed
WASECA, MN (AP) -- Prosecutors say they plan to appeal the dismissal of six charges against a 17-year-old boy accused of plotting to kill his family and attack his southern Minnesota high school.
The teen appeared in a Waseca County courtroom Wednesday for a hearing on whether he should be sent to adult court. The Star Tribune says the hearing was postponed while prosecutors appeal the dismissal of attempted murder and attempted damage to property charges.
A judge Monday dismissed those charges, but let stand six counts of possessing explosives.
The teen was arrested in April after bomb-making materials were found in a storage locker in Waseca, 70 miles south of Minneapolis.
Police say they also found guns, explosives and a journal that outlined a plan to kill his family and fellow students.
