SCHAGHTICOKE, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities will move early this week to have a man accused of killing his parents brought to New York from Massachusetts.
State police say 22-year-old Anthony Repp will face second-degree murder charges for the deadly beatings during an argument Thursday.
They say autopsies determined Repp's 58-year-old mother, Cynthia Matala, and stepfather, 62-year-old Michael Matala, died from skull fractures and brain injuries.
Repp was arrested Friday in Deerfield, Mass., on Friday, a day after the attacks at the Matala's home in the Rensselaer County town of Schaghticoke.
Michael Matala was pronounced dead Thursday. His wife died late Friday at an Albany hospital.
Prosecutors tell local media outlets Monday that Repp refused to waive his right to an extradition hearing.
Troopers released the autopsy results Sunday.
