WESTON, Conn. -- Weston Police Chief John Troxell said he was stunned by the murders of two former residents and the discovery of their remains in town last week, according to the EastonCourier.com.
The disappearance of the Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin, who were longtime Weston residents before they moved to Easton in spring, made national news, and had worried neighbors speculating about what had happened to the couple, said the EastonCourier.com.
Troxell was among the first to respond when the remains were found at an abandoned property at 89 Norfield Road — just 500 feet from Town Hall, the EastonCourier.com said.
Since the discovery, Kyle Navin of Bridgeport, the couples's 27-year-old son, has been arrested and charged with two counts of murder and one count of murder with special circumstances.
Held on $2.5 million bond, Kyle Navin also faces a federal charge of possession of a firearm by a drug addict in September.
The drugs, including heroin, and guns were found during a search of his Bridgeport home in connection with the disappearance of his parents.
Kyle Navin's girlfriend, Jennifer Valiante, 31, of Westport, was charged with conspiracy to commit murder and first-degree hindering prosecution. She was held on $2 million bond.
Jeanette and Jeffrey Navin of Easton were reported missing on Aug. 4. Jeffrey, 56, was president of J&J Refuse in Westport, where Kyle Navin was operations manager. Jeanette, 55, was a library paraprofessional at Weston Intermediate School.
State Police found traces of his mother's blood in Kyle Navin's truck and of his father's blood in Kyle Navin's home. Both had been shot. Her body was wrapped in a tarp, and his was in contractor bags when the remains were dumped at the Weston home, police said. The remains were found by workers doing fall cleanup on Oct. 29, police said.
