JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Jacksonville man has been charged with fatally shooting his parents.

The Florida Times-Union reports that 21-year-old Charles Pierre Fritzner III was arrested Wednesday morning and charged with two counts of murder. He was being held without bail.

Police say 52-year-old Charles Pierre Fritzner Jr. and 42-year-old Ltanya L. Fritzner were fatally shot in their home Tuesday evening. The couple's daughter told police she heard them scream from another part of the home. When she went to check on them, her wounded mother told her they had been shot by their son.

Detectives say the suspect had been told to move out of the home because of drug use.
