FARMINGTON — A determination as to whether a teen accused of killing his two younger brothers in West Point last year should be tried as an adult could could be made by late May.

During a court hearing on Thursday, 2nd District Judge Janice Frost set May 21-23 for a certification hearing for the 15-year-old teen.

The teen  is accused of stabbing his 10-year-old and 4-year-old brothers last May 22.

The boys’ mother found the two young boys in their home, but could not find her older son. She reported him missing to police. He was later found walking down a street in Layton.

Homicide charges were filed in July against the teen and in September he waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

In November, a judge ruled that statements he initially made to investigators cannot be used by prosecutors because they continued to question him about his brothers’ deaths after he refused to waive his Miranda rights.

The teen had no criminal history.
