TYLER, TX (KLTV)- Attorneys in the Nate Anderson case have agreed to a settlement conference in the coming weeks.

Anderson is accused in the shooting death of his sister, Amanda Anderson, back in September in the family's Chapel Hill home.

Right now, he remains in juvenile custody. Attorney's agreed to the conference in a hearing Tuesday afternoon, which will discuss where the case is headed.

"The purpose of the conference is to discuss the facts of the case and see if there's a possible resolution that both the juvenile and state can all agree to and can be presented to the court for the court's consideration," said Cynthia Kent, Anderson's guardian ad litem. "Whether that's dismissal, plea or some other resolution that's the purpose of the conference."

Kent says the conference doesn't mean a resolution will or even has to happen. The next hearing is set for January 31.
