Mequon man pleads not guilty in parents' slaying

Published on: 6/29/2011

A Mequon man charged with killing his parents at their home in April entered not guilty pleas Wednesday.

Dennis Markov, 20, faces two counts of first degree intentional homicide in the April 17 slayings. Victor Markov, 45, and Larissa Markov, 39, were found dead in their home in the Ville du Parc neighborhood, after she failed to show up for work. Both had been shot in the back of their heads.

Markov, who was home when police arrived, told them he shot his parents after an argument that ensued when his father denied his request for $5 in gas money.

The case was set for trial in January.
