COLVILLE, Wash. -- One of boys accused of bringing weapons to school had a previous history of bad behavior before he was caught plotting to kill his classmates.

Shelley Knight, who says her son was bullied by one of the boys, says her son's clarinet was stolen along with another kid's iPod. The school had been notified of the incident and was looking for the clarinet.

Knight says the instrument was later returned after police found it in the 5th grade boy's home.

The Superintendent of the Colville School District, Michael Cashion, had no idea about the incident until KREM 2 notified him.

Superintendent Cashion says the boy was suspend for bringing alcohol to school on a separate occasion which got him suspended for 5 days.  The boy has also been in trouble for bullying.

The Superintendent says he sees suspension letters go out every two weeks and he believes this kind of behavior doesn't indicate something more dangerous is going to happen.

The School District also works closely with the juvenile justice and mental health trying to get troubled students the help they need.

The hearing for the two boys was pushed back yesterday. The new date if March 15 and that is when a judge will determine if the boys had the capacity to commit the crime.
