WESTON, Conn. — A Westport woman is due in court Monday morning on charges connected with the murder of her boyfriend's parents, who remains were found last week in a Weston yard, police said.

Jennifer Valiante, 31, of Westport and Bridgeport, was taken into custody at her parents' home at 8 p.m. Friday, police said. She was charged with conspiracy to commit murder and first-degree hindering prosecution.

She was transported to New Haven detention and was held on $2 million bond. She is scheduled to appear Monday in state Superior Court on those charges.

State Police have an arrest warrant charging her boyfriend, Kyle Navin, 27, with two counts of murder and one count of murder with special circumstances, police said. Navin has been held in federal custody in Rhode Island since he was charged with possession of a firearm by a drug addict in September.

At least two guns and evidence of heavy heroin use were found in the Bridgeport home shared by Navin and Valiante, federal prosecutors said.

That Bridgeport home was purchased for Kyle Navin by his parents, Jeanette and Jeffrey Navin of Easton, who had not been seen since Aug. 3 and were reported missing Aug. 7.

Human remains were found Thursday in the yard of an abandoned home on Norfield Road near Weston Center, police said. Those remains were positively identified Friday by the state medical examiner, state police said.

The discovery of those remains led to the arrests of Navin and Valiante.

The arrest warrants also detailed text messages between Kyle Navin and Valiante about his plan to kill his parents as well as receipts that showed the two purchased contractor trash bags used to dispose of his father's body, according to the News-Times .

Jeffrey Navin, 56, was president of J&J Refuse in Westport, where Kyle Navin was operations manager. Jeanette Navin, 55, was a library paraprofessional at Weston Intermediate School.
