Michael Lindgren in court

EASTON, Pa. - A man accused of killing his mother and severely beating his father in Bethlehem is in court Thursday.

A formal arraignment is being held for Michael Lindgren.

Officials say Lindgren came to the police station last August demanding help and acting upset, but he was allowed to leave.

They say a few minutes later, officers were called to the home of Lindgren's parents, Ralph and Shirley, on East Wall Street.

Police say both parents were beaten, and Shirley Lindgren died a few days after the August 22 attack.
