(WFLX) - The sentencing phase for Tyler Hadley, he's accused of killing his parents in 2011, will continue Tuesday morning.

Proceedings are expected to begin at 9:30 a.m.

In opening statements Monday, the prosecution said the killing of Blake and Mary Jo Hadley was a cold, calculated premeditated act.

The defense did not offer any opening so the prosecution began calling witnesses.

The first witness to the stand was Tyler Hadley's older brother, Ryan, who is six years older than Tyler.

He was on the stand for nearly an hour and said he and his brother had a very close relationship growing up. "If me and him weren't going somewhere together, we were in my bedroom watching a movie, watching Family Guy, doing something together," Ryan said.

Hadley said his parents were very loving and generous. He testified that as Tyler got older, he began hanging with a bad crowd, and he would steal his parents debit card and at times take his father's truck keys without permission, "He started sneaking out a lot. He would go out the back door or go out his window. Sometimes, they would catch him. Sometimes, they wouldn't."

Ryan said his parents put Tyler in rehab and installed a tracking device on his phone which he said really upset him.

At the end of his testimony, Ryan Hadley was asked what he wants to see happen to his brother. "I guess what I want is for him to get the maximum penalty possible, which I understand is life in prison without the possibility of parole," testified Ryan Hadley.

The state also called Mary Jo Hadley's niece who said Tyler Hadley looked fine at a family dinner the night before the murders.

The next two witnesses to the stand were acquaintances of Tyler Hadley.

The first was a friend who said Hadley complained about his parents due to the fact that he was in rehab and that he couldn't go out.

The state wants the judge to issue the maximum penalty of two consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole.

Because Hadley was 17-years-old when his parents were killed, he is not eligible for the death penalty.
