A 30-year-old male resident of the same household was arrested at the scene and is currently in police custody, charged with one count of First Degree Murder and one count of Attempted Murder. The identity of the accused is being withheld at the present time to protect the identity of the victims'. The accused has been remanded into custody and will appear in the Ontario Court of Justice Barrie today.
