(WXYZ) — Ethan Crumbley, the 15-year-old suspect in the deadly Oxford High School shooting rampage last month, appeared virtually in court on Monday afternoon.

He is charged as an adult in the murders of his four classmates – Tate Myre, Hana St. Juliana, Madisyn Baldwin and Justin Shilling – as well as the shooting of seven other people at the school on Nov. 30.

His parents, James and Jennifer Crumbley, who are charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter, are expected to be back in court on Tuesday.

Ethan's court hearing was probable cause conference, the next step in his case. The case was adjourned until Jan. 7, 2022, giving attorneys more time to go through evidence.

His attorney also requested that Ethan leave the Oakland County Jail and instead go to Children's Village, where juveniles are held.

His attorneys argued that he didn't have a history of assaulting children and that it was an isolated incident. The prosecutor fought back and requested the judge keep him in the Oakland County Jail.

He's facing four counts of first-degree murder, one count of terrorism and more.
