MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - A teenage boy from south-central Minnesota accused in a suspected synthetic drug death wants to remove his electronic monitoring device before school starts.

An attorney for the 17-year-old boy made that request of a judge Friday.

The boy, who is being tried in juvenile court, wants to take the GPS monitoring device off in time for his senior year of high school, which starts in September.

KTOE-AM reports prosecutor Casey Hardy said she does not recommend allowing the request. Hardy says the bracelets cannot be seen under a pants leg.

The teen is accused of providing a white powder to Chloe Moses of Mankato. The 17-year-old girl died at a hospital in March.

The boy faces charges of third-degree murder and third-degree drug sales. His jury trial is scheduled for October.
