Judge James Hudson ruled Nathaniel Jouett, who was 16 years old at the time of the shooting, is not eligible for an amenability hearing.

Jouett's defense attorney had filed a motion, asking the court to conduct a hearing and to find Jouett amenable to treatment. If that would have happened, Jouett would have been allowed to enter a rehabilitation facility be released at the age of 21.

Since the judge denied the motion, a sentencing hearing is scheduled for Feb. 11. 

Jouett faces up to two life sentences plus 96 years in prison.

Librarians Wanda Walters and Kristina Carter were killed in the shooting, four others were injured, including a 10-year-old boy and his sister.
