JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida judge has set a trial date for a teenager who is accused of killing his grandmother.

News outlets report that Judge Bruce Anderson Jr. decided Monday that jury selection will begin on May 13, 2019, in the case of Logan Mott. Mott was 15 when he was arrested on charges of second-degree murder and theft of a vehicle.

Mott and his 53-year-old grandmother Kristina French had been reported missing when they didn’t pick up Mott’s father from the airport the day before Thanksgiving in 2017. French had been watching the boy while his father was out of town.
