Case of teen charged in parents' double murder to be reset as he remains in jail

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The teenager accused of murdering both of his parents as they slept will remain in jail.

The attorney for AJ Armstrong asked a judge for bond today so he can be released. Instead, his case was reset for April 17 and will stay in jail until the bond issue is addressed at that time.

Both were shot last July in their Bellaire-area home.
