UPDATE: Dennis Oland In Court Today

Dennis Oland showing little emotion in the courtroom as he was formally charged with second-degree murder in the death of his father Richard more than two years ago.

The 45-year old son of the slain City businessman entering the prisoner's box dressed in a grey sweatshirt, nodding at family members who were seated in the courtroom and giving them a slight smile. When the judge asked him if he understood the charge, Oland said yes. 

He will be appearing in court again next Tuesday to set a date for a preliminary inquiry and will be held in custody in the meantime.

When asked for comment, Oland's lawyer, Gary Miller, spoke about the weather. Oland's family did not speak to the media.
