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

A juvenile court judge on Friday granted a request from the teenager’s attorney that the boy 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, ages 4 and 10, were found stabbed to death inside their Ogden-area home in May.

Aza Vidinhar is in custody after authorities investigating the stabbing deaths found him miles away with traces of blood on him, officials say.
