CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A man accused in the slaying of a Charlottesville woman and her daughter has a court date in June.

Thirty-year-old Gene Everett Washington is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the beating deaths of 58-year-old Robin Aldridge and her 17-year-old daughter, Mani Aldridge.

They were found in their home on Dec. 5 when firefighters responded to a fire.

Washington is scheduled to appear June 6 in Charlottesville Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court because the younger Aldridge was a minor.

Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Elizabeth Killeen told The Daily Progress (https://bit.ly/1Euni3N ) the case will ultimately be shifted to Circuit Court.
