CHARDON -- A judge has indefinitely delayed the murder trial of an 18-year-old charged in the shooting death of three high school classmates.

Judge David Fuhry in Chardon, east of Cleveland, said Monday that he will hold a hearing in late January to discuss a new trial date. The trial of T.J. Lane has been scheduled to begin next Monday.

The judge ruled in response to a joint motion from prosecution and defense attorneys who say they have new evidence. The nature of the evidence was not disclosed in court.

Prosecutors say Lane took a .22-caliber pistol and a knife to Chardon High School last Feb. 27 and fired 10 shots at a group of students in the cafeteria. Three were killed and three others were wounded.
