GEAUGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

Admitted Chardon High School shooter TJ Lane is due back in court this afternoon. 

The hearing will decide on a new trial date for Lane.

Police say Lane entered the cafeteria at Chardon High School last February and opened fire. 17-year-old Russell King, Jr., 16-year-old Daniel Parmertor and 16-year-old Demetrius Hewlin were killed in the shooting. 17-year-old Nick Walczak remains paralyzed from the waist down. 18-year-old Joy Rickers and a 6th, unidentified victim were treated and released from the hospital.

Lane was recorded in a police cruiser after he was picked up and read his rights saying "I shot people."  An officer asked why and he responded "I don't know." 

He faces life in prison if convicted.

The judge already ruled the jury will be sequestered during deliberations.
