By Michael T. Baldwin

The young Clarksville boy accused of killing his parents in November 2019 remains in the Allegany County Jail without bail…that’s according to Allegany County Corrections Officers.

William J. Larson, Jr. was charged with killing his parents and setting fire to their home on Courtney Hollow Road in November 2019, but the case continues to move forward toward and a trial is still pending. In February 2020, an Allegany County Grand Jury indicted Larson on two counts of second-degree murder, one count of attempted arson, two counts of concealment of a human corpse and three counts of tampering with physical evidence.

Larson, who was 17 at the time of the killings, pleaded not guilty to all charges. A criminal complaint alleged Larson killed his parents, William Larson, Sr., 67, and Lisa Larson, 50, by shooting and stabbing them on the family’s property Nov. 5, 2019.

Court officials confirmed today that they are still awaiting reports. They said defendant’s counsel has requested more time to do so.
