AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

The teen accused of brutally murdering his girlfriend's parents was in court on Tuesday.

Shawn E. Ford, Jr., 18, faces the death penalty if convicted of murdering Jeffrey and Margaret Schobert.

Ford is accused of murdering the couple in their New Franklin home on April 2, as well as assaulting the couple's daughter and his girlfriend, Chelsea, on March 23. Chelsea suffered stab wounds and a fractured skull.  

Ford came to court Tuesday for an update on an order that he be tested by psychiatrists to learn his competency to stand trial. 

Judge Tom Parker ordered prosecutors to turn over statements Ford made to police to his attorneys. 

At one point, the judge questioned Ford about his thoughts on the progress of the case. Ford seemed to have a very good grasp of his situation.

"Are you satisfied with how things are going?" the judge asked.

"It's not looking good, so I'm not satisfied," Ford replied.

"What?" asked the judge.

"It's not looking good, so I'm not satisfied," Ford repeated.

"What's not looking good, the case?" the judge said.

"Yeah," Ford said.

"You probably shouldn't talk about your feelings about the case," the judge told him.

Ford will be back in court in two weeks. He remains held on a $2M bond.
