A trial date has been set for the 16-year-old accused of killing his mother and 9-year-old brother.
Adrian Navarro-Canales is accused of stabbing and killing his mother, 40-year-old Elvira Canales-Gomez, and brother, Cesar Navarro. He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder with a deadly weapon.
On Tuesday, Clark County District Judge Valorie Vega scheduled the teen’s trial for Sept. 22, 2014.
Henderson Police discovered Canales-Gomez's and Navarro's 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 apartment. The discovery set off a six-day search for Navarro-Canales that ended Sept. 25 when police found him at an open-air food court on the Las Vegas Strip, near Tropicana Avenue.
