The father of a 17-year-old boy who is accused of plotting to kill his family and attack his southern Minnesota school says there were no signs his son was having problems.
    
The father spoke with reporters Wednesday after a hearing for his son in Waseca.

He says he didn't know his son had a storage locker that police say contained bomb-making materials. And he wishes the teen would've asked for help before his April arrest.

John LaDue appeared in court Wednesday on charges of 12 felonies, including four counts of attempted first degree murder.

Local defense attorney Christa Groshek, who is not involved in the LaDue case, stopped by KSTP to talk about what the defense needs to prove in order to keep this case in juvenile court and what is possibly in store for LaDue.
