MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A man accused of killing his parents in Arkansas has been assigned a public defender to handle an aggravated assault charge in Tennessee.
Antonio Whitlow is being held in Memphis, where he was in court Monday to answer charges in which he's accused of stabbing a man in May.
The 33-year-old Whitlow was arrested in Memphis on July 28, the same day his parents, Bobby and Annette Whitlow, were found dead in their Little Rock home. Whitlow was with his 12-year-old sister who didn't appear to be harmed.
The Arkansas case didn't come up in his Monday hearing because he has to consult with his attorney before the case can move forward.
Whitlow is being held on $50,000 bond.
His next Tennessee hearing is Aug. 20.
