The Laurens man accused of killing his parents in December appeared in Otsego County Court on Friday.

Kevin Perry, 23, was only before the judge for seven minutes Friday morning. Perry is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder for allegedly shooting his parents, 59-year-0ld Timothy Perry and 52-year-old Solveig Perry, to death at their home on New Road on Dec. 12.

Kevin Perry was indicted by a grand jury at the end of January. In court on Friday, he pleaded not guilty to the first- and second-degree murder charges.

On Friday, the prosecution argued for a very high bail for several reasons.

“The evidence is strong; he ran from the police, so it shows that he is a flight risk,” said Otsego County District Attorney John Muehl. “And he’s facing life in prison without parole. So, under those circumstances I felt that substantial bail was required.”

During his argument for a high bail, the prosecutor mentioned that Perry got into a high-speed chase with Schoharie County deputies, reaching speeds of over 100 miles per hour.

Perry is due back in court Feb. 23.
