A 25-year-old Muskegon man has admitted he killed his parents last week, a prosecutor told the arraigning judge Monday.
Gregory Scholtens was arraigned June 15 on two counts of open murder by Muskegon County District Judge Maria Ladas Hoopes, who denied bail. Scholtens is accused of killing Maureen Scholtens, 56, and Randy Scholtens, 60, at their Egelston Township home the afternoon of Thursday, June 11.
Randy Scholtens died at the scene, and investigating deputies found the body of Maureen Scholtens inside, authorities said. Both had been stabbed, Matt Roberts, chief trial attorney for the Muskegon County Prosecutor’s Office said earlier.
Brown said it appeared Maureen Scholtens died first and that her attacker then waited for Randy Scholtens to return home.
