Kollie will remain in jail at least one more day while the judge considers whether to allow him home detention while the case moves through the courts.

Court will begin again Thursday at 3:30 pm.

According to federal officials, 24-year-old Ethan Kollie did not know about the August 4 attack before it happened, but he allegedly lied to purchase guns and bought some of the accessories used by the Oregon District shooter.

Kollie faces federal charges unrelated to the shooting and could face up to 15 years in prison.
