PEORIA, Ariz. -- Peoria police officers have arrested a man in the fatal stabbings of a married couple in their home in the Phoenix suburb.
Police say 58-year-old Gwen O'Reilly and her husband, 54-year-old Raymond O'Reilly, were killed in their home late Sunday night.
Police identified the suspect arrested Monday morning as 27-year-old Benjamin Rodriguez. He's facing two counts of first-degree murder.
Rodriguez was arrested at the Phoenix home of a relative after authorities received a tip.
Police say Rodriguez knew the victims but lived elsewhere in Peoria. They say he had visited the O'Reilly home along with a few other people for a social gathering.
