BENICIA (KRON) — A Benicia teenager accused of killing his family was in court Monday in El Dorado County.

Nolen Buchanan is accused of murdering his father, 7-year-old brother, and father’s girlfriend.

Prosecutors want to try him as an adult.

All three were found dead weeks ago in the family’s burned cabin. There was no allegation in the complaint about the house catching fire with the bodies inside.

Adam Buchanan was the owner of a construction company in Benicia.

And his son attended the local high school.

Nolen continued to live in Benicia and was attending school. He was arrested last Thursday.
