GEAUGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

In documents filed Monday, a change of venue has been denied for admitted Chardon High School shooter TJ Lane.

A trial date has yet to be set. A court and attorney conference has been set for February 26 at 9:30 a.m.

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.

    In April, Williams Baptist cross country runner Alex Van Herpen competed in the prestigious Boston Marathon. An incredible feat. Learning about his path to get there, it stopped me in my tracks. Five years ago Alex was bound to a wheelchair. in January of 2011, he was diagnosed with strep throat, the flu and mono all within a two week period. For five months Alex was bound to a wheel chair. One day he just got up and walked. Medical experts had no explanation for any of it.  ...
