As murder case proceeds, feds drop gun charge against Navin.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – Kyle Navin, who is charged with murder in the deaths of his parents from Easton, appeared in a Bridgeport courtroom Wednesday about whether a probable cause hearing would be held, according to the Connecticut Post.Kyle Navin, accused of killing his Easton parents and burying them under a pile of leaves in a friend’s backyard, was clearly more relaxed Wednesday during his second appearance in the Main Street courthouse. John Smirga, Connecticut’s State Attorney confirmed that federal gun charges have been dismissed but Navin is still being held on $2.5 million bond.

Maybe it was the bright orange jumpsuit he was wearing instead of the prison khakis, or the fact that he is now in state custody after the feds dropped their gun charge against him. But as he stood there listening while Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin explained how the case was being continued until Jan. 20, Navin, 27, looked across the courtroom where a television camera was trained on him and – winked. He previously characterized the documented evidence against Navin and Valiante as “voluminous.” Navin had initially been charged by federal authorities with the rarely used charge of possession of firearms by a drug-dependent person while state police prepared their murder case against him.

They disappeared from their Easton home on Aug. 4, 2015 and their bodies were found buried beneath a tarp and debris of a vacant home in Weston on Oct. 29, 2015. Defense attorney Eugene Riccio is representing Kyle Navin in one of the highest-profile cases in Connecticut in years and is concerned his client may have a difficult time getting a fair trial, according to CBS New York News.

Jeffrey Navin, 56, was president of J&J Refuse in Westport, and his wife, Jeanette Navin, 55, was a Weston Intermediate School library paraprofessional.
