Authorities declare a man suspected in the beating death of his father and his father'south fiancee in Shakopee killed himself during a standoff with police in Waseca.

Police declare officers found the 68-year-old man and 67-year-old woman deceased in their basement early Tuesday. Shakopee Police Chief Jeff Tate describes the scene as "brutal" but says the motive remains unclear.
