8 year old charged in father's death

In St. Johns, Arizona, an 8-year-old boy is charged with murder in the shooting of his father and another man. St. Johns is a rural community in eastern Arizona.

A Thursday morning press release from the St. Johns Police Department said they were called to the home Wednesday at 5:08 p.m. on a report of a possible homicide.
"Officers arrived one minute later to find a male subject deceased outside the residence," read the statement. "Officers entered the residence to search for the suspect(s) and further possible victims. A second male subject located inside the residence was also deceased."

Police issued a second press release which announced the double homicide investigation was now solved. "Arrested early this afternoon was a juvenile who was charged with the two homicides and is currently being held at the Apache County Juvenile Detention Center."

A judge has ordered a psychological evaluation of the child. Authorities said the boy had no record of complaints with Arizona Child Protective Services.
