On Sept. 24, 2015, during a short five-minute arraignment, Kyle Navin, 27, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. A federal grand jury indicted Navin with one count for firearm possession by an individual for unlawful use, as well as charges related to controlled substances on September 17. Navin could get up to 10 years in prison if he is convicted of the charges, according to TrumballTimes.com.
The Connecticut man has been held since September 8 when he was arrested for the same charges. He wore a tan prison uniform and limped as he was led into the courtroom. He also had trouble standing to give his plea. As of this report, he will remain in custody until a release hearing is held. The arrest warrant has alarming accusations about the drugs and firearms found in Navin’s Bridgeport home, a stark contrast to the star hockey player and 2006 graduate of Weston High School.
Although he has not been formally charged, investigators say the Connecticut man is also a person of interest in the disappearance of his parents, Jeffrey and Jeanette Navin. The couple recently sold a home for $900,000 in June 2015 and had moved into a modest home in Easton before their disappearance. Family members reported the Navins missing on August 7, however, Kyle Navin was the last person to see his parents on the fourth of August.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Dayton will prosecute the case that is being presided over by Senior U.S. District Judge Warren Eginton. Jury selection is scheduled to begin on Nov. 9, 2015.
