Arrested without drama

The man was arrested without drama and, during the interrogation, confessed that it was he who killed the ancestors.
He is now charged with two counts of premeditated murder, illegal weapon possession and drug possession, among other things.
Locked in the garage
In cross-examination, the man said he thought a family member would hurt him, and that he had hit his grandparents with a hammer.
