The couple, identified as Helen and Dennis Lucak, both 72 years old, was found dead at their residence in the 11800 block of Harbor Light Drive.

Authorities said the couple was found shot to death inside their bedroom. A family member reached out to police when she became concerned that the two didn't show up for church service and weren't answering the door.

Brewer was later taken into custody as a person of interest. He was indicted on Tuesday.

Authorities said that a few years prior, police were called to the home for a domestic argument involving Brewer and his parents, but no one was arrested.
