The 16-year-old accused of killing his mom and 9-year-old brother pleaded not guilty in Clark County District Court today and waived his right to a speedy trial.
Adrian Navarro-Canales is accused of stabbing and killing his mother, 40-year-old Elvira Canles-Gomez, and brother Cesar Navarro.
Navarro-Canales is charged as an adult on two counts of murder with a deadly weapon.
Henderson Police discovered his family members' 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.
A trial date will be decided Dec. 3.
