Serna


Ely R. Serna’s case has been transferred from Champaign County Juvenile Court to Champaign County Common Pleas Court, according to a court journal entry released late Monday.

Serna, 17, is facing 13 charges including two counts of attempted murder and six counts of improperly discharging a firearm at or into a habitation or a school safety zone stemming from a Jan. 20 shooting at West Liberty-Salem High School.

Following a competency hearing on May 5, the court found Serna to be competent to stand trial on May 19.

Bond for Serna was established at $1 million during a hearing earlier this month.

Two people were injured in the shooting, including West Liberty-Salem High School student Logan Cole, who is recovering after many months of medical procedures and rehabilitation.
