Oxford High School Shooting Suspect to Remain in County Jail
Ethan Crumbley will remain in adult jail following a review hearing of his status as an incarcerated juvenile.
The accused mass shooter has been in jail since his arrest in the Nov. 30 incident that left four students dead.
Crumbley’s appearance in front of Judge Kwame Rowe in circuit court took place Thursday morning with no significant updates from either the prosecution or the defense.
He’s had several virtual meetings with the judge that also include his attorney and a guidance counselor hired to oversee the care of the 16-year-old.
The remote hearing is required by Michigan law for juveniles jailed in adult jail.
The next hearing is scheduled for Sept. 22 at 9 a.m. over Zoom.
Crumbley’s trial was originally scheduled for September, but was moved to after the holidays to better account for potential schedule disruptions for a jury.
