By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Oct 30, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The 16-year-old boy accused of stabbing and killing his mother and brother was back in a Las Vegas courtroom Wednesday morning.

Adrian Navarro-Canales faced a judge for his preliminary hearing.

Police said he stabbed his mother Elvira Canales-Gomez and his 9-year-old brother Cesar in September in their Henderson apartment.

The boy then went on the run before being arrested a few days after the deaths.

Navarro-Canales is being charged as an adult.
