(CBS/AP) CHARDON, Ohio - TJ Lane, the teen charged in an Ohio high school massacre that left three students dead and seriously wounded two others, appeared Tuesday in juvenile court where a judge told him his case could be sent to adult court for trial.

Juvenile Judge Tim Grendell postponed a hearing on that matter from March 19 until April 3 because two new attorneys have joined the defense team.

Lane, 17, did not enter a plea to the three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of attempted aggravated murder and one count of felonious assault that he's facing.

Prosecutor David Joyce says Lane has admitted taking a .22-caliber pistol and a knife to Chardon High School in northeast Ohio on Feb. 27 and firing 10 shots at a group of students sitting at a cafeteria table.

Joyce expects the case to be moved to adult court, where Lane could face life in prison if he's convicted.
