    A judge in Dallas has set a Feb. 14 trial date for a 13-year-old boy charged with killing a Garland couple.

    Judge William A. Mazur Jr. on Tuesday set the juvenile capital murder trial date for the boy. His 12-year-old girlfriend is also charged with juvenile capital murder over the shootings that led to the deaths of 46-year-old Darlene Nevil and her 48-year-old husband, Alan Nevil.

    Garland police say the wife died the day of the Aug. 17 attacks. Her husband died Sept. 2.

    The girl faces trial Jan. 24. Both children remain in juvenile custody.

    Conviction carries a potential 40-year sentence, with the juveniles having to serve at least 10 years.

    The Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday that the children have not appeared in court during the pretrial process.
