Fairfax police have charged a 17-year-old boy with the murder of his ex-girlfriend’s parents. Buckley Kuhn-Fricker and Scott Fricker were shot dead in their Virginia home early Friday, reports the Washington Post. Fairfax County Police Department’s initial investigations revealed that the unidentified teen entered the home and was confronted by the couple. After allegedly shooting them, he turned his weapon on himself. The teen is in critical condition at a hospital, where FCPD says he is under police guard. The boy was charged with two counts of murder Saturday. No motive has been revealed, but multiple sources close to the family say they recently demanded that their 16-year-old daughter stop seeing the suspect after discovering he was a Nazi sympathizer.

"My daughter and her husband found out about a lot of the Nazi stuff just this past week, and they forbid their daughter to see him again," Buckley’s mother, Janet Kuhn, told the Post. The couple reportedly discovered that the teen was posting white power rants and praising Hitler on social media. Buckley alerted the teens’ high school principal and sent a message to the boy’s mother asking if she knew he was “an outspoken Nazi.” Their daughter ended the relationship hours before her parents were killed. None of the four other family members inside the house at the time of the shooting were injured. "I’m in shock," Janet Kuhn told the Post. "I haven’t been able to cry yet." (More murder stories.)
