John Granat, 17, charged with TWO counts of first-degree murder for 'beating parents to death' - 14th Sept 2011

Authorities in suburban Chicago have charged a high school student in the deaths of his parents, who were found beaten in their Palos Park home.

The Cook County medical examiner on Monday ruled that 42-year-old Maria Granat and 44-year-old John Granat died after suffering multiple blunt force injuries.

Maria Granat was also stabbed.

They were pronounced dead early Sunday in their Linksouthwest suburban Chicago home.

Authorities say the couple's son, 17-year-old John Granat, has been arrested and is now charged with first-degree murder in their deaths.

Police haven't revealed a motive for the killings.

An autopsy revealed Mr and Mrs Granat were found dead in their bedroom with Mr Granat dying from blunt force trauma to his head.

His wife was also beaten as well as being stabbed repeatedly. Source
