Pre-trial discussions have resumed in the case of a Connecticut man accused of killing his parents after they threatened to cut him out of their wills.

Kyle Navin appeared briefly on Thursday in Bridgeport Superior Court. A judge continued the case until Feb. 16 after meeting in private with Navin's lawyer and a prosecutor. Details of the discussions were not released.

Navin did not say anything in court. He remains detained on $2.5 million bail awaiting trial.

The 28-year-old Easton man has pleaded not guilty to murder charges. The bodies of Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin were found in Weston in October 2015, two months after they disappeared.

Court documents say the couple was upset about their son's behavior and drug use, and planned to cut him out of their wills.Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
