(ABC 6 News) --   A Waseca teen accused of plotting to kill his family then carry out an attack at his school has a court hearing scheduled for Wednesday.

17-year-old John LaDue was arrested at a storage locker that police say contained bomb making materials and weapons.

He's charged with 12 felonies, four of those counts are attempted first-degree murder.

Prosecutors say he kept a detailed journal of his plan for the attack.  A judge could decide whether or not to seal that evidence. 

We could also learn if LaDue will be charged as an adult pending the results of a court-ordered psychological exam.
