A man accused of fatally stabbing his nephew and injuring his brother has been ordered held without bail in Rhode Island.

Pleas of not guilty were entered Monday on behalf of 20-year-old Jared Rogers to charges of murder and assault with a dangerous weapon.

Police say he stabbed his nephew, 19-year-old Michael Rogers, and his brother, 30-year-old David Rogers, Saturday at their Warwick home and then fled. He was later caught in North Providence.

Michael Rogers died from his injuries. David Rogers is in stable condition.

Police allege Jared Rogers stabbed the men with a kitchen knife after an argument.

A bail hearing is scheduled for April 11.

He's been appointed a public defender. A woman who answered the phone at the public defender's office said nobody was available to comment.
