BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- The pretrial proceedings for Kyle Navin, who is charged with murdering his parents, has been continued so the 28-year-old Bridgeport man can be examined by mental health experts, according to the Connecticut Post.

Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin agreed to the request from Navin's attorney Eugene Riccio, said the Connecticut Post.

Navin is charged with killing Jeffrey Navin, 56, president of J & J Refuse and Jeanette Navin, 55, both of Easton, last August. The couple's bodies were found after an extensive search Oct. 29 , buried beneath a pile of debris in Weston.

Kyle Navin's girlfriend, Jennifer Valiante, who is charged with conspiracy to commit murder and hindering prosecution, is accused of helping her drug-addicted boyfriend plan the murder of his parents. His parents had planned to cut him off and disinherit him because of his drug addiction and because he had failed to repay debts to them.

An arrest warrant affidavit revealed text messages between the two accused planning the murder, in addition to detailing how police found two bullet holes in the front passenger seat, and seatbelt of Kyle Navin’s pickup truck, and the mother's blood on the seat. His father's blood was found in Navin's basement.

Navin is held on $2.5 million bond, and Valiante is held on $2 million bond.
