Sylvie Cachay's parents got their first look in court Tuesday at Nicholas Brooks. He said nothing and didn't look at anyone in the courtroom audience during the brief proceeding.
Antonio and Sylvia Cachay said they felt Brooks didn't care. His lawyer said Brooks didn't know the parents were there.
Sylvie Cachay's body was found in a bathtub on Dec. 9. Brooks has said he left her sleeping.
Brooks' lawyer says he may contest findings she died of strangulation and drowning.
Brooks' father is Academy Award-winning "You Light Up My Life" songwriter Joseph Brooks.
