UTICA, N.Y. -- The Oneida County district attorney is elaborating on why a murder defendant is also charged with attempted murder Thursday.

Naythen Aubain is accused of killing his grandmother and her landlord in their Tilden Avenue home in January.

He pleaded not guilty, but he also pleaded not guilty to attempted murder.

There was a third victim in this case.

The Oneida County district attorney says after Aubin allegedly killed his grandmother, he tried to get his neighbor to come out of the house so he could kill him too.

The DA says he was armed and prepared to kill that person, and made statements that his intent was to kill him.

“We acknowledge this is as far away as you can get on attempt. Generally, what people typically look for and what jurors often look for is an intervening fact, very close in time and proximity and in this case it's a little more extenuating,” said DA Scott McNamara.

The case is adjourned for one year, as Aubain is being held by the Office of Mental Health. He's evaluated every 90 days.
