They say 33-year-old Justin Dodd was arrested early Saturday morning without incident.

Officers from the nearby city of Duncan responded just after midnight on Saturday to a report of suspicious circumstances at a house in Crofton. 

The Mounties say when they arrived they found two people dead in the home. 

Dodd, who is a Duncan resident, is expected to appear in court to face the charges on Nov. 2.
