WINTHROP, Maine (AP) - Newly released court documents say a Maine couple slain last fall died of stab wounds.

Andrew Balcer (BAHL’-sur) is accused of killing Antonio and Alice Balcer in their Winthrop home on Halloween. Andrew Balcer, now 18, faces charges including murder in their deaths.

A state police affidavit released Thursday indicates Balcer told a dispatcher he stabbed his parents to death along with a family dog.

Documents say Alice Balcer was found face down in her bedroom with a stab wound to her back. Antonio was found in the kitchen with 13 stab wounds to his chest and torso. A military-style knife was found stuck into the floor near his body.

Prosecutors are trying to have Balcer tried as an adult.

Balcer’s attorney says his client is undergoing a psychological evaluation.
