A Chico man named a person of interest in his mother's murder isn't facing murder charges for the time being.

Instead he's now being charged with stealing his father's car.

32 year old Alton Facciuto was in court Wednesday where he pleaded not guilty to car theft.

District attorney Mike Ramsey tells us though Facciuto has not been named a suspect in his mother Sherry's murder he's not ruling out pursuing a murder charge.

No other suspect has been named in the case.
