A 50-year-old man was taken into custody in connection with a double homicide that occurred Sunday evening in Warren County, authorities said.

Todd S. Warner was arrested Monday at a Pennsylvania casino and later charged with homicide and unlawful weapon possession, authorities said Tuesday.

WARNING: GRAPHIC MATERIAL AHEAD

Washington Township police were dispatched to Frank and Joyanne Warner's Pelegrine Drive home just after 5:46 p.m. Sunday on reports of an unconscious male, who could be seen through an exterior window, the prosecutor said.

Police forced entry into the house where a man, later identified as Frank Warner, 73, was found dead with partial covering over his head, Burke said.

Joyanne Warner, also 73, was found dead in the first floor rear bedroom, authorities said.

Autopsies conducted by the medical examiner ruled the pair died of blunt force trauma, and considered the deaths homicides, Burke said.

Authorities traced the silver Kia Soul missing from the Warner's house to the Parx Casino in Bensalem, PA, where a transaction on Frank Warner's credit card had been made, authorities said.

Pennsylvania State Police identified Warner on the casino's surveillance cameras before pulling him backwards from a card table while he was playing blackjack around 4 p.m. Monday, LehighValleyLive reports.

Frank and Joyanne Warner, who were high school sweethearts, were being remembered as an extraordinary couple and inspiring owners of Frank Anthony Salon in Chester.

The two were planning on retiring in December, family members said.
