A 19-year-old Arizona man was arrested for allegedly murdering his parents this week, several months after the couple was found shot to death in their home, the Gila County Sheriff’s Office announced.
Hunter Stanfield was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the slaying of Chase Stanfield, 39, and Gail Stanfield, 50.
Both of the victims were found dead from multiple gunshot wounds on the morning of Oct. 27 in their home in Payson, a town in central Arizona about 80 miles northeast of Phoenix.
