A Doddridge County teen accused of murdering his parents and little sister made his first appearance as an adult in court Tuesday afternoon.

17-year-old Joseph B. Spencer stood silent while the clerk read him the charges of his indictment. Joseph's attorney did not want his client to enter a plea at his arraignment, saying they haven't received the results yet from a psychiatric evaluation.
 
He also fought the prosecution's motion to make Joseph give a DNA sample to the the West Virginia State Police Crime Lab to be compared against blood on a shirt that's labeled as evidence. The judge did not rule on that matter. He said the state could file the motion and the defense would have 10 days to respond.
 
Joseph Spencer is charged with first degree murder in the Labor Day deaths of his parents, Frederick and Dixie, and his sister Patience.
