TROY, Mich. (WXYZ) - The missing Troy man's son, Patrick Mikes Jr ., was arraigned in court today on an open murder charge.
Mikes Jr. is back in jail and is being held without bond.
His next court appearance will be on August 27 at 1:30 p.m.
Wednesday night police held a press conference to announce the arrest of 21-year-old Patrick Mikes Jr.
“We have met the burden, the extremely high burden that the prosecutor’s office has set for us to meet in order to get that warrant,” said Troy Police Captain Robert Redmond. “I am confident, as they are confident that Mr. Mikes was killed by his son.”
Police say DNA tests show that the massive amount of blood found in the family’s basement after Mikes Senior was reported missing, belonged to both he and his son.
On Thursday, Troy Police resumed their search for Patrick Mikes Sr. in Montrose Township.
