WASECA, Minn. (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 (http://strib.mn/1s4zJxW ) 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.
