Teen charged in parents' Halloween killing pleads not guilty

#

A Maine teenager indicted on charges of killing his parents has pleaded not guilty.

Nineteen-year-old Andrew Balcer is charged with stabbing his parents to death on Halloween morning 2016.

The Kennebec Journal reports Balcer stood before a judge on Friday and responded to an inquiry about his pleas by saying, "Not guilty on all, sir."

Balcer agreed to be held in jail in lieu of a bail hearing that could have resulted in his losing his right to bail. He still has the right to request such a hearing.

Balcer's trial is tentatively set for November 2018.

Balcer also pleaded not guilty to a cruelty to animals charge. He was accused of killing the family's Chihuahua.
