Gregory Lamont, who is currently residing at Knockbracken Healthcare Park on Belfast's Saintfield Road, denies killing his 64-year-old father John and attempting to murder his mother Elizabeth Lamont, 60.
The couple were stabbed in a house in the Carnvale area of the Co Antrim town on 15 January last year.
On Thursday Lamont appeared at Antrim Crown Court, sitting in Belfast, and after each of the two charges were put to him, he replied "not guilty."
Prosecutor Paul Ramsey said the Crown is awaiting medical reports on behalf of the accused, which are expected at the end of this month.
Mr Judge Weir listed the case for further review on 21 February and Lamont was returned to Knockbracken.
