BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- A 16-year-old boy accused of bringing an explosive device to his Lafayette high school wants a judge to close his trial to the public.

Andrew de Bartolome is charged as an adult with attempted murder, use of explosives, possession of an explosive and menacing.

De Bartolome is accused of bringing a device to Centaurus High School in Lafayette on May 13, forcing the evacuation of the school and a nearby road for several hours. A teacher found the explosive in a paper bag and took it outside.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, the youth is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 28.
