The wounded 16-year-old Montgomery County boy charged with murder and robbery in Warren County is scheduled to return to court Monday morning for an emergency review of his detention.

John Kaspar, lawyer for Logan Dean, has filed the motion in Warren County Juvenile Court, prompting the scheduling of a hearing at 9:30 a.m. Monday in the court in Lebanon.

In addition, hearings expected to result in transfer of the case against Dean and two other juveniles charged in the case have been delayed, according to court officials.

On Monday, Judge Joe Kirby ordered Dean to remain in detention in Lebanon despite a request by Kaspar to release Dean to his grandmother because of his medical condition.

Along with Dean, those facing aggravated robbery and murder charges are Dakota Cox, 18; Kayla Carmack, 17; and Jacob Hicks, 16.

Investigators allege they along with Mason Trudics, 18, of Centerville, attempted a robbery that ended with Trudics dead and Dean critically wounded. The target of the attempted robbery fired shots at those involved, investigators have said, and is not charged.

Carmack was scheduled for the transfer hearing on Monday, Dean on Wednesday and Hicks on Friday. No new dates were immediately available.
