The 17-year-old accused of stabbing his father to death will be charged as an adult.
Dries Luera was transferred from juvenile hall this afternoon and arraigned in a Shasta County courtroom.
During the proceedings, he indicated he did not understand the complaint against him. A public defender ended up answering questions for Luera.
The attorney asked for time to review the case before entering a plea. Luera will be back in court on Tuesday.
