BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) — A judge has given a Colorado man more time to enter a plea to charges that he fatally shot a 13-year-old boy and wounded three people, including the boy’s mother and younger brother.

Attorneys for Jeremy Webster said Tuesday that they need more time to understand the 23-year-old’s mental health history. Webster is due back in court on Jan. 7.
