Montgomery County police have charged a 20-year-old man with two counts of murder in connection with the shooting deaths of his father and stepmother, two physicians whose bodies were found in their Burtonsville home.
A relative found the bodies of Dr. Norman N.K. Katz and his wife, Dr. Michelle R. Filling-Katz, about 1:30 p.m. yesterday in their home in the 3000 block of Brownstone Court. The relative had gone to the home to check on the couple, police said.
Police charged Javant Naravan Katz with two counts of first-degree murder. He is being held without bond.
Police were unsure of a motive for the killings.
The relative found Norman Katz lying in the dining room, police said. He had been shot three times.
His wife had been shot twice and was found on the floor in the kitchen, where she had been preparing a meal, police said.
