A man suspected of killing his parents on Thanksgiving night at their Montgomery home will remain in Colorado another month as he continues to fight extradition. 28-year-old Brent Springford Junior was arrested December Ninth at the Centennial Peaks Hospital, a mental health facility in Louisville.

Springford's public defender argued against his extradition to Alabama in a Boulder District Court hearing closed to the public. His next hearing is set for February 17th.

Police said Springford is accused of beating to death his parents, Brent and Charlotte Springford, both 62, in a fashionable section of Montgomery.

Springford's parents' estate, which includes the Luverne Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co., is to be split equally between Springford and his sister, Robin Springford Crouch.

A probate judge in Alabama will hold a hearing January 26th on the elder Springfords' will.

A man identifying himself as the younger Springford in December called Alabama television stations from Centennial Peaks Hospital. The man said he did not kill his parents and had checked himself into the mental hospital for a bipolar disorder days before his arrest.
