MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state Supreme Court will decide whether a Milwaukee man accused of killing his parents deserves a new trial.

Prosecutors charged Corey Kucharski with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the 2010 shooting detahs of Ralph and Pamela Kucharski. Corey Kucharski said voices told him to kill them. He was sentenced to life.

He argued on appeal that a judge wrongly ruled he was mentally responsible for his actions even though it was undisputed that he was suffering from schizophrenia. A state appeals court in May granted him a new trial, ruling Kucharski was in a psychotic state when he killed his parents and there was no other explanation for his actions.

The high court announced Monday it would take the case.
