NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- Prosecutors say they have not reached a plea deal with the teen suspected of shooting a flare into a home that set off a fire that killed three small children.

Attorneys on Tuesday, July 8, had a pre-trial conference in the Cody Cashion case.

He's accused of firing a flare into a New Albany home in January to get back at someone living in the house.

Three children who were visiting the home were killed. Cashion is now charged with their murder.

Prosecutors expect to find out in the next few weeks if Cashion wants to enter into a plea agreement.

“I would like to see a resolution so that the family can try and put this behind them but it has to be an appropriate resolution. It has to be a just resolution,” Steve Owen, a prosecutor in the Cashion case, said.

If Cashion doesn't enter into a plea, his trial is set to start in September.
