Twenty-one-year-old murder and kidnapping Jake Patterson made a court appearance in Wisconsin on Wednesday.

He only appeared in court for three minutes, where he waived a preliminary hearing and was ordered to stand trial.

Patterson admitted to shooting and killing 13-year-old Jayme Closs’ parents on Oct. 15 before holding the teen captive for three months.

He faces two charges of intentional homicide, along with counts of kidnapping and murder. Patterson is being held on a $5 million bail.

His arraignment is scheduled for March 27.
