MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — The preliminary hearing for a 16-year-old boy charged with wounding 20 students and a security guard during a knife attack at a western Pennsylvania high school has been postponed again.

A district judge first set an April 30 hearing for Alex Hribal of Murrsyville, but that was moved to Friday by his attorney after Westmoreland County prosecutors added extra attempted homicide charges after allegedly finding a note in Hribal’s Franklin Regional High School locker indicating he planned to injure other students.

Now court records indicate the May 9 hearing has been pushed back to June 4, again at the request of defense attorney Patrick Thomassey.

The reason for the postponement wasn’t immediately clear, in that Thomassey had previously told The Associated Press he plans to waive the hearing, which will determine whether Hribal stands trial.
