TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- The trial of a Bartlesville teenager charged with plotting to kill classmates and police officers inside a high school has been postponed.
Court records show that 19-year-old Sammie Eaglebear Chavez is now set for trial Sept. 23. He had been set for trial Monday.
Chavez was arrested in December just hours before a gunman opened fire at a Connecticut elementary school and killed 20 children and six adults before killing himself.
Chavez pleaded not guilty after prosecutors claimed he hatched a plot to lure students into the Bartlesville High School auditorium with a plan to shoot them after chaining the doors shut.
Prosecutors say Chavez also planned to place bombs by the auditorium doors and detonate them as police officers approached.
