LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles father found with stab wounds in an SUV where his three sons were dead has been ordered to remain in jail without bail on three counts of murder.

City News Service reported that the arraignment of Luiz Fuentes was postponed Wednesday until Oct. 27.

Authorities allege Fuentes used a knife to kill his sons - 8-year-old Alexander, 9-year-old Juan and 10-year-old Luis - before using it to wound himself.

He has been held without bail since the Sept. 9 killings. He is eligible for the death penalty, but prosecutors say they will decide later whether to seek it.

Neither police nor prosecutors have cited a motive.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Fuentes’ wife died in 2008 and he had been severely depressed ever since.
