MURRYSVILLE, Pa. - A preliminary hearing in the case of a Franklin Regional High School student charged in the stabbing and slashing of fellow students has been delayed.
According to Channel 11’s news exchange partners at TribLIVE, the hearing for 16-year-old Alex Hribal was scheduled for Wednesday but is now set for May 9.
Defense attorney Pat Thomassey sought the delay after prosecutors added additional charges in the April 9 attacks at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville.
Hribal is charged as an adult with multiple counts of attempted homicide and aggravated assault and a school weapons violation in the attack on students and a security guard in a hallway just before the morning bell.
