BRIDGEPORT — Thursday was thought to be the deadline for suspected murderer Kyle Navin to decide whether he will accept or reject a plea bargain by prosecutors, but his decision has been postponed until Thursday, February 16.

The terms of the deal are not known at this time.

He’s charged with two counts of murder and one count of murder under special circumstances.

Navin has pleaded not guilty to killing his parents, Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin, whose bodies were found outside a vacant home in October of 2015.

Police said that Navin’s mother told a friend that she and her husband planned to sell their family business and cut Kyle off financially.

Jeanette Navin was also upset about her son’s drug use and his failure to pay the mortgage and taxes on a house they bought for him.

A month before his parents disappeared, Navin texted his girlfriend Jennifer Valiante saying he has the perfect plan to get money for life.

According to the arrest warrant, Navin said the plan would solve every single problem and “give us a wealthy and amazing life.”

The 28 year-old is being held on $2.5 million bail and Valiante is being detained on $2 million bail, but she has denied that she conspired in the killings.
