Ethan Crumbley, the gunman at a Michigan high school, will plead guilty to murder and terrorist charges, avoiding a trial.
He was not offered a plea bargain and is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison.
It’s unclear whether he’s secured a plea arrangement that encourages him to plead guilty.
Unlike Florida, where Parkland gunman Nikolas Cruz narrowly evaded execution last week, Michigan does not have the capital penalty.
Crumbley’s parents have also been charged in the shooting at Oxford High School.
They have been charged with enabling him access to firearms and failing to interfere, even on the day of the slaughter.
They’d been summoned to the school to talk about his frightening scribblings on workbooks, where he’d written about terrible ideas that ‘simply wouldn’t stop.’
Instead of taking him home that day, they left him at school and vowed to get the boy counseling.
Instead, he began shooting at his classmates, killing four of them.
Sixteen-year-old Crumbley is due in court on Monday.
