A judge has post­poned a hear­ing to de­cide whether a 15-year-old boy will be tried in adult court in the death of 10-year-old Ki­aya Camp­bell.

A week-long hear­ing was sched­uled to be­gin Oct. 30 in Adams County. A pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing dur­ing the same hear­ing will de­ter­mine whether there is suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence to war­rant a trial.

The thin, fid­gety teen, who ap­pears to be much younger than 15, hud­dled close to his at­tor­ney and was silent. He pre­vi­ously was charged with first-de­gree mur­der with in­tent to kill after de­lib­er­a­tion and first-de­gree mur­der of a child un­der the age of 12 by some­one in a po­si­tion of trust.

Ki­aya dis­ap­peared the night of June 7 while walk­ing with the boy on a shop­ping trip. Her body was found the next day.
