Nikolas Cruz was back in a Broward County courtroom Wednesday in front of Circuit Court Judge Elizabeth Scherer.
With his head down, Cruz sat silent throughout his appearance.
He was indicted by a grand jury last week on 17 charges of premeditated first-degree murder and 17 charges of attempted first-degree murder. Cruz's legal team told the judge that he didn't need to hear his charges read aloud because he already understood them.
Only 15-year-old victim Luke Hoyer's name was read out loud in the courtroom.
