David and Vivian Bouwman were found murdered in their home in January, and Higgins was the only suspect in that case. He will be charged with two counts of felony murder, a count of first-degree home invasion and felony firearm possession, according to Kentwood Police. A video arraignment will take place Thursday, July 11 at 1 p.m.
Higgins’ stay in jail has been peppered with instances of odd rebelling and misbehavior, including refusing to leave his cell and rubbing feces on his face.
This prompted the court to order a psychological evaluation in April, and he was found competent to stand trial for the home invasions and auto thefts Tuesday, July 9.
If convicted on either murder charge, Higgins could spend the rest of his life in jail.
