A teenager charged in a deadly Ohio school shooting is staying at a youth detention facility instead of being moved to a county jail as he waits to be tried as an adult.

Seventeen-year-old T.J. Lane has pleaded not guilty to fatally shooting three students and wounding three more in February at Chardon High School east of Cleveland. His trial is set for August in Geauga County.
Lane was expected to be moved this week from juvenile detention to a jail that holds adults. A judge ruled Lane can remain at the youth center but would have to pay the daily cost, which is about $120.
Someone is paying those costs on Lane's behalf, but it's not clear who that is.
