Man charged with killing parents

Posted at 4:18 PM, Jun 15, 2020

A man accused of killing his adoptive parents appeared in court today.

Gregory Scholtens, 25, was arraigned at the 60th District Court in Muskegon.

He is facing two counts of open murder.

His adoptive parents were found dead at a mobile home park home in Egelston Township last Thursday afternoon.

There was a fight outside the home, and the couple likely died from some sort of blunt force trauma.

He is being held without bond.

Scholtens has a mental competency hearing on Sept. 24.

He's a habitual offender, with three previous felonies, including resisting arrest.
