The parents of a man arrested in Penrith on Friday have been identified as the victims of the “tragic” alleged double homicide in the quiet NSW town of Oberon.
Glenn, 68 and his wife Susan, 66, were found at their home in On-Avon Ave yesterday morning just after 7am.
Emergency services made the discovery after they were called to the home to conduct a welfare check.
Their son, Graeme Leslie Murray, was arrested more than 120km away on Jack William Drive in Penrith just before 9am.

He spent Friday night under police guard in Nepean Hospital after undergoing treatment for injuries he is understood to have suffered when he confronted his parents.
“He has some injuries to his hand and is likely to undergo some form of surgery,” Superintendent Grassick said.
“There are some indications that it (his wounds) may have been inflicted by that source (knife), but we are still trying to establish that at this stage.”

Acting Superintendent Bruce Grassick described the incident as “tragic” and said one of the bodies was discovered in the kitchen and the other at the rear of the house.
“It’s quite tragic what has transpired. Police were confronted by two deceased, a male and a female at the home … one towards the rear of the house and one in the kitchen area,” he said on Friday.
“There were phone calls from him (the son) this morning, not directly to police initially, it was to another party who subsequently contacted police.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
