(Newser) – A 26-year-old Oregon man accused of murdering his grandparents is in custody tonight after a motel standoff ended with his arrest, reports the Oregonian. Michael Boysen had holed up in the Lincoln motel and refused police orders to leave the room for hours. Police eventually blew down the door with water cannons. Boysen, who was taken away in an ambulance, had what appeared to be self-inflicted cuts, reports CNN.

"We removed the front door for him to show him which way we wanted him to come out," says the police chief. "And he chose not to." Boysen had been released from prison only Friday after serving a year on burglary charges. His grandparents picked him up and even hosted a welcome-home party for him that night. They were found dead the next day, and police have released few details about their murders.

This would have been a good time for "suicide by cops"

This guy is a monster. Every breath he takes is an insult to his poor grandparents.
