A man in Florida, was jailed after he shot and killed both of his parents.

Charles Pierre Fritzner, 24, of Jacksonville, pleaded guilty to 2 counts of Murder in the First Degree, for the shooting deaths of his parents.

Fritzner killed his 52-year-old father Charles and his mother, 42-year-old Ltanya Fritzner.

Before the mother died, she told her sister that she and her husband were both shot by their son.

Prosecutors agreed to drop the death penalty in exchange for his guilty plea.

The defendant was sentenced to a mandatory life in prison sentence on each of the counts. The sentences will run consecutively.

In May, officers responded to the victims’ Colonial Avenue residence in reference to a shooting. The investigation revealed that the victims told Fritzner, to move out of their home because of defendant’s drug use.

Later that day, an argument broke out between the victims and the defendant, which resulted in Fritzner shooting his parents multiple times. Both succumbed to their injuries.
