A 9 a.m. Friday, May 23, hearing is scheduled in Jasper County Circuit Court in the case against Memorial Middle School shooter Thomas Gregory White.
Court records on case.net say the hearing was scheduled by Judge David Mouton for "pre-trial motions or change of plea and scheduling conference for special trial setting."
This has been the first development of any kind in the case since the Missouri Supreme Court denied a motion by White's public defenders to return the case to juvenile court.
White, 15, was a 13-year-old seventh grader at Memorial when he entered the school on Oct. 6, 2006, with an assault rifle, fired the weapon into the ceiling and then attempted to shoot Principal Steve Gilbreth when the gun jammed, according to authorities.
White, who has been in jail since that time, is charged with two counts of assault, and single charges of armed criminal action, unlawful use of a weapon, and attempted escape.
