SEASIDE, Ore. (AP) -- Police announced an arrest in the investigation of a man and a woman found dead inside a Seaside home who police believe were slain with a baseball bat.

The Seaside Police Department and Clatsop County Sheriff's Office on Saturday charged 50-year-old Marcus G. Foster with two counts of aggravated murder.

The deaths were reported to police on Friday after a concerned employer called police.

Inside the home were 53-year-old Laura Foster and a man in his 60s, whose identity is being withheld until his next of kin are notified. Police have not clarified the relationship between Laura and Marcus Foster.

Marcus Foster was arrested without incident on State Route 30 near Knappa.

Police believe the pair were slain on Thursday.
