During the proceedings, Parker sat handcuffed and listened to the judge.

The court hearing was very brief.

There were discussions about security and cell phone evidence. The downloaded data from 100 phones are being kept in Frankfort, Ky.  It is taking the prosecution time to go through the data, as there was over 600MB of data.

DNA evidence was gathered but has not been tested.

The attorneys approached the bench to discuss a security issue.

The judge then set the next court date for March 2019 at 1 p.m.

Parker faces two counts of murder and fourteen counts of first-degree assault in connection with the January school shooting.

Earlier this year, a judge ruled the 16-year-old would be tried as an adult.
