Court upholds conviction in parents' knife slaying

•  Recent Cases     updated  2011/08/18 09:17


The Michigan Court of Appeals has upheld first-degree murder convictions against an Oakland County man for stabbing his parents to death.

Mark Ott of White Lake Township was convicted in the fatal stabbings last year. The bodies of 57-year-olds Barbara and Michael Ott were discovered in February 2008 at their home in White Lake Township, about 30 miles northwest of Detroit.

On Wednesday, the he appeals court affirmed the jury's decision to find Ott guilty but mentally ill. Ott is serving the mandatory sentence of life without parole.

The appeals court vacated Ott's convictions on two counts of second-degree murder based on double jeopardy principles. The ruling says double jeopardy doesn't allow multiple punishments for the same offense.
