UTICA, N.Y. -- More information has been released about the Utica double homicide suspect, Naythen Aubain.

Officials say Aubain was referred to the Utica City Mental Health Court last March following an incident where police say he strangled his grandmother.

Records show he was a good candidate for the program.

The Utica man accused of killing his grandmother, and their elderly landlord was making weekly appearances in the city's "Mental Health Court" at the time of their deaths.

"If you're successful in the end it could lead to a dismissal, it could lead to just a suspended sentence, it could lead to a reduction of the charge. It's different in every single case," said Oneida County Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Kelleher.

Court records show Naythen Aubain showed up for all of his weekly, required court appearances, which are every Tuesday.

Aubain's next court date is set for February 11.
