The RCMP say second-degree murder charges have been laid against a man for the deaths of two people in the Vancouver Island community of Crofton.
They say 33-year-old Justin Dodd was arrested early Saturday morning without incident.
Officers from the nearby city of Duncan responded just after midnight on Saturday to a report of suspicious circumstances at a house in Crofton.
The Mounties say when they arrived they found two people dead in the home.
Dodd, who is a Duncan resident, is expected to appear in court to face the charges on Nov. 2.
The names of the victims are not being released.
