Two counts of capital murder against a man charged with killing his parents are headed to a grand jury in Tazewell County.
The bodies of Valerie and Harvey Looney were discovered at the Claypool Hill pizza parlor they managed in March 2009. Their son was charged with their deaths earlier this year.
Commonwealth Attorney Dennis Lee said he will seek two counts of capital murder against Looney. He hasn't said whether he'll seek the death penalty.
Looney is being held at the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail.
