TULSA, Oklahoma -

The trial for a Bartlesville teenager charged with plotting to kill classmates and police officers inside a high school is slated to begin this week.

Nineteen-year-old Sammie Eaglebear Chavez is due in a Washington County district courtroom Monday for the start of his trial.

Chavez was arrested in December on the same day that a gunman opened fire at a Connecticut elementary school and killed 20 children and six adults before killing himself. Chavez' arrest came hours before the Connecticut killings.

Chavez pleaded not guilty after prosecutors claimed he plotted to lure students into the Bartlesville High School auditorium with a plan to shoot them after chaining the doors shut.

Prosecutors say Chavez also planned to place bombs by the auditorium doors and detonate them as police officers approached.
