BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man charged with murdering his parents in August made a brief appearance in Superior Court in Bridgeport.

The Hartford Courant reports Judge Robert Devlin issued a continuance Wednesday in the double murder case against 27-year-old Kyle Navin.

Navin and his attorney will have until Jan. 20 to inform the court if they want a probable cause hearing. The state would be required to present some of the evidence gathered before Navin was charged with fatally shooting Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin.
