A 73-year-old man is facing charges in a double murder in Idaho.

Early Tuesday morning police officers were called to a home where the bodies of two adults were found.

"I was shocked honestly, especially around this town, this close to home, this kind of stuff doesn't happen around here," said neighbor Nicholas Boshaw.

Boshaw said the victims were close to everyone in the neighborhood.

"She's somewhat of a neighborhood watch, I don't know if you'd consider it that, but she'd keep track if anybody sketchy came in, you know?" said Boshaw.

Now neighbors say they're devasted to see the light of their community suddenly extinguished.

"Every once in a while during the summer, she and I would exchange gardening tools, and she'd come help me out and give me supplies," Boshaw added.
