Duanesburg man accused of killing wife, son appears in court
A Duanesburg man accused of killing his wife and son appeared in Schenectady County Court Tuesday morning.
Back in December, police say 47-year-old Nelson Patino called 911 to say he stabbed his family.
Police found Patino’s wife and 5-year-old son dead in the home. A 2-year-old boy survived.
Patino is facing first and second-degree murder charges, as well as attempted murder.
Officials say that Patino has been granted a Huntley Hearing. That’s a pre-trial hearing reviewing how police obtained statements from the defendant.
No date has been set yet.
