The suspect in the Oxford school shooting and his parents are all due back in court this week

The suspect in the Oxford school shooting and his parents are all due back in court on January 7th.

15-year-old Ethan Crumbley is scheduled for a PROBABLE cause conference on Friday. It’s a legal step in the process as prosecutors pursue murder, terrorism and other charges connected to the deaths of four high school students and the wounding of seven others including a teacher.

Also on Friday, his parents will be in court for a motion hearing. They are facing four counts of involuntary manslaughter.

At the hearing, a judge is expected to consider James and Jennifer Crumbleys’ request to have their respective 500 thousand dollar bonds reduced to 100 thousand dollars.

Prosecutors claim the Crumbleys are a flight risk.
