Chardon, OH -- An attorney for a teenager charged with killing three students at an Ohio high school says negotiations are under way for a possible plea deal.

Attorney Ian Friedman confirmed the negotiations Friday but wouldn't offer details. He says if a plea for defendant T.J. Lane occurs, it could happen at his next court date Feb. 26.

The 18-year-old Lane is charged in adult court with fatally shooting three students last February at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland.

A judge has ordered psychiatric testing for Lane. Attorneys for both sides want the testing to determine if Lane is competent to stand trial.

Prosecutors say Lane fired 10 shots at a group of students in a cafeteria. He was at the school waiting for a bus to his alternative school.
