BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The son of a Connecticut couple whose remains were found months after they vanished has made his first court appearance on two murder counts.A Connecticut man who wrote of a “perfect plan” to get money “for life” was arrested on murder charges Tuesday morning after the remains of his parents were found in a vacant house last week, state police confirmed to Fox News.Kyle Navin, the Connecticut man accused of killing his parents, did not enter a plea during a court appearance Tuesday and was ordered back to court November 24.

Kyle Navin, who was already in federal custody on a weapons charge, was formally charged with murder on Tuesday and ordered held in lieu of $2.5 million bond. Kyle Navin, 27, of Bridgeport, was charged with two counts of murder and murder with special circumstances in the deaths, Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin, of Easton. His lawyer, Eugene Riccio, says the hearing was “just the start of a long judicial process.” “And I think experience has taught all of us that we have to reserve our judgment about these situations ’till all of the facts are known,” Riccio said.

Jennifer Valiante of Westport, Kyle Navin’s girlfriend, was arrested last Friday and charged with conspiracy to commit murder and hindering prosecution. Speaking to reporters after the hearing, Valiante’s attorney, Elliot Warren, said his client has “spoken with police and maintains her innocence.” According to the police affidavit supporting Kyle Navin’s arrest, he had texted Valiante that that they needed to figure out the best way to “take them down,” referring to his parents, and “get some money out of them somehow.” In other text messages to Valiante, Kyle Navin referred to a plan to “solve every single problem and give us a wealthy amazing life” and “wipe out the infection and get $ for life,” according to the affidavit. Court documents indicate Jeanette Navin had told a friend that she and her husband planned to sell their trash-hauling business and cut their son out of their will. The affidavit also describes Kyle Navin’s long-troubled relationship with his parents, who, it said, were worried about their son’s alleged heroin use. A friend of Jeanette Navin’s told investigators that the couple had bought their son a house in his name, but that he had failed to pay the mortgage or taxes, the affidavit said.

During the September search of Kyle Navin’s home, Jeffrey Navin’s blood was found near where police discovered an 11-by-7 piece of carpet missing from the basement floor, according to court documents. Investigators also learned that the tumultuous relationship between the couple and their son included Jeffrey Navin’s “history of being emotionally and verbally abusive towards his son Kyle,” the court document said. WestportNow reported that the Navins, who had lived in Weston for about 20 years before selling their home and moving to a rental home in Easton a month before their murder, owned J&J Refuse in Westport.

The warrant says they were in the process of selling the business, where Kyle Navin had worked, and quoted Jeanette Navin as telling a friend they planned to cut Kyle out of the will because of his drug abuse. Retrieved text messages in May between hKyle Navin and and Valiante that are included in the warrant show the escalating tension between Kyle Navin and his father, WestportNow said.
