A 15-year-old Oakland boy charged with strangling his parents to death will be represented by a public defender.
Moses Alfredo Kamin is believed to have killed his adoptive parents over what police say may have been an argument about being suspended from school.
It was initially reported that Kamin and his parents may have gotten into an argument about how much time he was spending at Occupy Oakland.
The 200-pound Kamin is believed to have strangled his parents and then dragged their body out to the cars where he tried to light it on fire.
The Oakland Police Department found the couple's body in the car covered with a red blanket.
Thursday The Oakland Tribune reported that Kamin was assigned to the public defender's office and he is scheduled to be back in court in two weeks.
Kamin has admitted to killing both Susan Poff, 50 and Robert Kamin, 55. He will be tried as an adult.
