WASHBURN, Wis. (AP) -- A 44-year-old man accused of killing his elderly parents in northwestern Wisconsin has been moved from a hospital to jail.

The Bayfield County sheriff's office says Jim Crain Jr. of Iron River was discharged Friday from a hospital in Duluth, Minn., and taken to the Bayfield County Jail.

Crain is accused of killing his father and mother, 79-year-old Jim Crain and 76-year-old Eunice Crain, in an attack in the couple's Iron River apartment on Dec. 7.

Authorities say Jim Crain Jr. apparently cut himself during the attack. He had been hospitalized in an induced coma.

A bail hearing was scheduled Monday afternoon in Bayfield County Circuit Court. The sheriff's office says Crain will appear by video.

A phone message left for his attorney was not immediately returned Monday.
