RENTON, Wash. (AP) — A King County man was arrested Wednesday after his grandmother and a 21-year-old house sitter were found dead in separate killings.
Renton police Cmdr. David Leibman says a family returning from vacation found their house sitter dead from an apparent gunshot wound just before midnight Tuesday. Their home is in the Rolling Hills neighborhood at 2000 block of SE 17th Court.
Leibman says Zachary Craven was booked into King County Jail on investigation of two counts of homicide on Wednesday.
Liebman says Craven is the former boyfriend of an adult daughter who lives in the Renton home. She was also on vacation with her family at the time of the murder.
He says there were no signs of a struggle at the home, and a motive was not immediately known.
Renton police say the man is also a suspect in a homicide in King County earlier in the day.
King County sheriff's Sgt. Stan Seo says a woman was found dead in the Skyway area Tuesday and investigators believe her grandson is the suspect. Seo says there is a court order protecting the grandmother from her grandson.
The family told police they grew suspicious when the sitter failed to pick them up from the airport as scheduled.
Anyone who has more information on the shooting case is encouraged to call 911.
