An arraignment for a 16-year-old Henderson boy accused of killing his mother and brother was delayed this morning.
Adrian Navarro-Canales’ hearing in Henderson Justice Court was rescheduled for 9:30 a.m. Oct. 30 at the request of his attorney Joe Abood, who requested more time to speak with Navarro-Canales and gather information.
Navarro-Canales appeared in court in shackles and standard blue jail attire. A marshal and a group of adult inmates flanked him as he stood for his hearing, which lasted less than two minutes. He showed no emotion as he nodded to the judge, indicating he understood the proceedings.
Navarro-Canales was charged as an adult on two counts of murder with a deadly weapon.
He is accused of stabbing and killing his mother, 40-year-old Elvira Canles-Gomez, and his 9-year-old brother, Cesar Navarro.
Henderson Police discovered their bodies Sept. 20 in the bathroom of their apartment at the Summit at Sunridge, in the 11000 block of South Eastern Avenue, three days after authorities allege Navarro-Canales stabbed them.
Navarro-Canales was not home when police entered. The discovery set off a six-day search for Navarro-Canales that ended Wednesday when police found him at an open-air food court on the Las Vegas Strip, near Tropicana Avenue.
