LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A judge in Las Vegas agreed to postpone an evidence hearing for a teenager arrested with an unloaded assault rifle at his former Las Vegas high school.

Deputy Public Defender Dedree Miles said Tuesday she hopes by Jan. 15 to negotiate a resolution of the charges against 19-year-old Jake Benton Howell.

Howell faces five charges of possession of a dangerous weapon on school grounds. If convicted, he could get several years in jail.

Howell is a student at Utah Valley University. He was arrested at his former high school Dec. 21 with an SKS rifle, ammunition, a 16-inch bayonet and three survival-style knives in his car.

Howell told investigators he anticipated the collapse of society.

Authorities had linked him to another teen currently facing federal weapon charges in Las Vegas.
