Prosecutors are expected to begin presenting a grand jury with evidence against a 19-year-old accused of killing 17 people at a Florida high school.

The Sun Sentinel reports that the panel, which meets behind closed doors, is expected to begin considering formal charges against Nikolas Cruz on Tuesday. He's been jailed since the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where he was once a student.
