Sparks, NV - The man accused of last week's double murder in Sparks makes his first court appearance.

Justin Ouimet showed no emotion as he made his first court appearance in Sparks Justice Court. He's facing two charges of open murder for killing a toddler and his grandmother. No bail was set.

Ouimet admits he killed his stepson, two-year-old Connor Lawrence, and his mother-in-law, 62-year old Lana Stone, out of rage.
Stone was babysitting her grandson at a home on I Street last Friday when Ouimet says he walked in from an unlocked front door, stabbed them both, then lit a toy on fire.
