BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) - A 25-year-old Bloomington man has pleaded not guilty to stabbing his parents to death.

Brian Petersen entered the plea to murder charges in McLean County Circuit Court on Friday. He is charged with killing his mother, 63-year-old Nancy Petersen, and his father, 68-year-old Bruce Petersen, on July 31 in the home they shared.

According to The Pantagraph (https://bit.ly/2bo2nMh ), there was no mention during Friday’s hearing of a previously ordered evaluation of Brian Petersen’s mental health. The evaluation was ordered after he appeared disoriented and waved his arms while rocking during an earlier hearing.

Petersen is being held on $6 million bond.
