SAN DIEGO (AP) - The son of a San Diego police detective has agreed to stand trial on charges that he stabbed to death his mother and sister.
City News Service says 24-year-old Brian Williams waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Monday. He's charged with murdering detective Donna Williams and 18-year-old Briana Williams last summer at their home in Rancho Penasquitos.
He was found near the nude body of his sister, who fell from a balcony.
His lawyer said Williams had an untreated, schizophrenia-type illness. A judge found Williams mentally incompetent to stand trial last fall but charges were reinstated after he was treated at a mental hospital and declared competent.
He could face life in prison if convicted.
