BUTTE, Mont. -

A court hearing has been scheduled in southwestern Montana so a 38-year-old Washington state man charged with killing his 3-year-old son near Anaconda can change his plea.
The Montana Standard reports (http://bit.ly/1ednZFY) that Jeremy Brent Cramer of Lacey, Wash., will appear in District Court in Anaconda on Tuesday.
A public defender entered an initial not guilty plea in late July.
Cramer was arrested July 8 after a convenience store clerk in Anaconda discovered him in the restroom, washing blood from his clothes.
Cramer's wife, Nataliya, had told Lacey police earlier in the day that her husband had taken their son and had not responded to phone calls and text messages.
Investigators found Broderick Cramer's body the next morning next to a knife and two rocks covered with blood and hair.
