FARMINGTON — A 15-year-old boy suspected of killing his two younger adopted brothers will remain in juvenile detention.

A juvenile court judge on Friday granted a request from the teenager’s attorney that Aza Vidinhar remain held until prosecutors file charges.

Defense attorney Todd Utzinger said the judge granted a two week extension so both sides could continue talks as the Davis County Attorney’s Office determines what charges it will file and whether the boy will be tried as an adult.

The teenager’s younger brothers, Benjie Vidinhar and Alex Vidinhar, ages 4 and 10, were found stabbed to death inside their West Point home on May 22.

The Associated Press is withholding the name of the juvenile defendant because of his age, along with the identity of other family members.
