GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - The attorney for a 17-year-old boy charged with stabbing 20 students and a security guard at his western Pennsylvania high school wants more time to review police and medical reports.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1u9B62N ) reports Alex Hribal’s (RY’-balz) defense attorney, Patrick Thomassey, wants a Westmoreland County judge to give him more time to file pretrial motions - which are due Friday - and to move Hribal’s trial date from December until at least March.

District Attorney John Peck isn’t opposing the requests, though the judge didn’t immediately rule.

Thomassey says he plans to ask the judge to move the case to juvenile court, where Hribal would face incarceration only until he’s 21 for the April 9 stabbings at Franklin Regional High School.

Hribal faces decades in prison if convicted as an adult.
