Navarro-Canales was arrested Sept. 25 on the Las Vegas Strip after police received a tip. His mother, Elvira Canales-Gomez, 40, and his 9-year-old brother, Cesar Navarro, were stabbed to death in their apartment on Sept. 20.

Navarro-Canales is being charged as an adult. He is due back in court on Nov. 18. for his arraignment on the murder charges.
