Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin of Easton, Conn., disappeared days after losing their latest appeal in a multimillion-dollar foreclosure case, a disappearance that a local police chief said appears increasingly suspicious though the pair's family said it may be unrelated to their financial woes. The Navin's were last seen on Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015 at the refuse company they own in Westport, according to Easton Police Chief Tim Shaw.

Kyle Navin, the Connecticut man accused of killing his parents last summer, has entered a plea of not guilty.

Navin, 27, is charged with two counts of murder and murder with special circumstance, according to court documents.

Navin’s parents, Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin, were last seen Aug. 4 at the trash removal and recycling company they owned in Easton, Conn., days after losing an appeal in a multimillion-dollar foreclosure case.

Investigators found their remains at a vacant home less than 10 miles away, Connecticut’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said.

During his court appearance Wednesday, Kyle Navin opted for a jury trial and waived his right to a probable cause hearing.

His attorney was not immediately available for a comment.

Navin’s girlfriend, Jennifer Valiante of Westport, Conn., is accused of conspiring with him to kill his parents. She has pleaded not guilty, according to court records.

Navin’s next court date is set for Feb. 24.
