A teen sentenced to life in prison for killing his 16-year-old sister is now scheduled to change his plea to charges that he tried to escape and assaulted a correctional officer.

A change of plea hearing has been set for 8:45 a.m. Nov. 26 in Cass County District Court in the case of Sergei Isaac Carlson.

Carlson, 16, was sentenced to life in prison last month for killing his sister, Whitney, last summer in south Fargo when he was 15.

He is now facing felony charges for trying to escape from the Cass County Juvenile Detention Center on Sept. 25.

Carlson repeatedly struck a correctional officer in the head with trim from a bookcase before being tackled to the ground by another officer, according to court documents.
