Phoenix police are investigating a gruesome double-murder stemming from a family argument.  Sergeant Vince Lewis says neighbors called police after seeing the suspect beating his mother in the front yard of their home.  Neighbors lost track of the two after the son dragged his mother behind the fence.  Once police arrived,

they discovered the mother had been slashed in a bloody and brutal way numerous times behind the fence of the front yard.  Detectives walked into the house and made another shocking discovery after finding the mother’s boyfriend dead with similar injuries.  The suspect, 37-year-old Brandon Southerland, has been arrested and charged with murder.
