SOUTH PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Two teenage boys arrested in what police said was a plan for a mass shooting at their Los Angeles-area high school have been released to the custody of their parents.

The Pasadena Star-News (http://bit.ly/1ru8X3r) reports a juvenile court judge Tuesday said the 16-year-old and 17-year-old boys from South Pasadena High School can stay with their parents under house arrest.

They’ve been charged with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit assault with a deadly weapon and making criminal threats.

They have denied the threat charge, and a defense attorney has said the evidence doesn’t support the other charges against them.

The teens were arrested last month before the school year began in what police chief said was a plot to target three staffers and kill as many students as possible. Police say they had obtained no weapons and hadn’t set a date.
