Officials are asking potential witnesses to provide information.
Rescue workers found a violent scene on Wednesday after a Clearfield couple was allegedly killed by their grandson.
Suspect Jeremy Belt, 26, was checked into the Davis County Jail just after 1 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning.
Police from multiple agencies were dispatched to a home near Steed Park around 3pm after a 60-year-old woman found her 87-year-old father and 85-year-old mother dead in the garage. She told officers her son, who was still inside, was likely responsible. According to a press release from the Clearfield City Police Department, responders reported “traumatic injuries” to the elderly couple who “were beyond help.”
After the police surrounded the house, Belt allegedly called his mother. She handed the phone to an officer, who persuaded Belt to leave. According to the press release, Belt was then taken into custody without incident.
Officers found “other acts of violence” from earlier in the day after investigating the scene, but gave no details. They encourage potential witnesses to contact the police department at 801-525-2800.
An inmate list shows that Belt was charged with aggravated murder, assault, trafficking in a dangerous weapon, possession of a controlled substance, use or possession of drug paraphernalia, and criminal mischief.
Police did not identify the victims until notifying family members.
