HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — A judge in southwestern Ohio will decide whether a 16-year-old honor student will be tried as an adult for allegedly setting a fire to kill his parents.
A Butler County Juvenile Court judge on Tuesday ordered a probable cause hearing in the case on Nov. 26. The boy's attorney has asked for a competency hearing and change of venue.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1fj7epD) reports that the high school junior is charged with two counts of attempted murder and a single count of aggravated arson in the Oct. 23 incident.
Police said the teen tried to kill his parents by setting their house on fire as they slept and tying their bedroom door shut. The couple suffered minor injuries escaping the burning house.
