EDMOND, Okla. — Police say a 19-year-old Oklahoma man told his younger brother that he fatally shot their parents because they were communicating with him telepathically and were Satan worshippers.

Investigators say in an affidavit released Tuesday that the younger brother called police about 2:30 a.m. Monday after waking up to his mother’s screams and the sound of gunshots. They say the 17-year-old told officers that his brother said everything would be OK and that he would bury the bodies.

Police found the bodies of 50-year-old Michael Logan Walker and 44-year-old Rachel Walker inside the home in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond and arrested their older son, Michael Elijah Walker, on first-degree murder charges. He remains jailed without bond and records don’t list an attorney for him.

Investigators say both victims were shot several times and Walker apparently reloaded his gun during the attack.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
