ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind.—This week’s scheduled court date for the teen accused of killing 6-year-old Grace Ross has been postponed, according to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office.
A petition to move the case to adult court was filed in November by the prosecutor’s office.
The suspect, who was 14 at the time of the murder, is now 15-years-old. ABC57 has not named the suspect because his case remains in juvenile court.
The suspect was originally scheduled to be in court on Monday.
A new date for the waiver hearing has not been set.
The suspect has been charged with acts that would be murder if committed by an adult.
Ross was found deceased several hours after she was reported missing in March 2021. The teen allegedly admitted to killing her.
