LENEXA, Kan. (AP) -- A 27-year-old man has been charged with the shooting deaths of a man and his stepson in a suburban Kansas City home.

Johnson County officials said Alexander W. Brune of Lenexa was charged Thursday with two counts of first-degree murder in the July 9 deaths of 47-year-old Brian Baskind and 79-year-old Clifford Preston. The men were found dead inside a home in Lenexa.

At the time of the shooting, authorities said a third person had called police to report the shooting and was found outside the house with a gunshot wound.

Johnson County prosecutors said Brune was the person who called. The charges allege that Brune killed the men during a burglary and attempted robbery. It was not clear if he knew the victims.

Brune has been jailed on $2 million bond.
