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.

Officials say Navin winked at two family members of his girlfriend while being led out of the courtroom. Thirty-one-year-old Jennifer Valiante is charged with conspiracy to commit murder in the case.

Navin’s lawyer declined to comment on the charges and Valiante denies any involvement in the killings.
