Accused parent-killer doesn't admit guilt, fights being sent back to TN
BATON ROUGE – A man from Louisiana accused of murdering his parents in the Knoxville area over the Thanksgiving holiday won't admit his role in the slayings and is fighting his return to Tennessee.
Joel Guy appeared in court Tuesday for an extradition hearing. Guy must cooperate with authorities in both states for him to be returned. Since he is not cooperating, governors from both Louisiana and Tennessee will have to secure court documents forcing Guy's return.
Guy is accused of murdering his parents sometime after Thanksgiving Day at their home in Knox County, Tennessee. Guy then tried to dissolve their bodies in a homemade acid-based solution before returning back to Baton Rouge the Sunday after Thanksgiving, authorities have said.
Guy was arrested in the parking lot of his South Baton Rouge apartment complex.
Guy will be back in court December 16th.
