SPRINGFIELD, OR (AP) -

Court documents show a Springfield man accused of killing his father with a baseball bat earlier this month admitted his crimes to police with little remorse.

The Register-Guard reports that an attorney for Michael Bryant says he plans to include substantial evidence of serious mental illness in his client's defense.

Bryant was arrested Nov. 15 after he was accused of killing his father, beating his mother, setting fire to their home and stealing their vehicle. He is also accused of killing the family's two dogs.

An affidavit made public in Lane County Circuit Court shows Bryant said he attacked his parents with an aluminum baseball bat as the couple watched television. He also said he did not have a mental illness.

Bryant faces several charges including aggravated murder.
