WASECA, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota teen accused of plotting to kill his family and classmates will be transferred to a new facility.

Judge Gerald Wolf granted the request to move the 17-year-old to the Prairie Lakes Youth Program's secure facilities in Willmar. The teen has been at a juvenile facility in Red Wing since his arrest in April.

The judge says the Willmar facility will give the boy access to a psychologist and a nurse practitioner who can prescribe medications, if needed. The judge ordered the boy's parents to help pay for medical treatment for their son.

Minnesota Public Radio News reports the defense attorney had no comment after Wednesday's hearing.

Earlier this month, prosecutors asked a state appeals court to reinstate attempted murder charges against the teen.
