ENGLEWOOD, N.J. (1010 WINS) – A New Jersey man has been charged after his elderly parents were found stabbed to death at their home this weekend, police say. 

On Saturday, Englewood Mayor Michael Wildes confirmed with 1010 WINS that a couple were found dead in their Englewood home and that one of their two sons was suspected of killing them. 

“The young man actually killed his parents and then fled,” Wildes said. 

After a manhunt Saturday, the son, identified as 43-year-old Pawel Boduch, was arrested and charged by police. He faces charges of murder and possession of a weapon. 

His parents, 71-year-old Edward Boduch and 72-year-old Miroslawa Potocka, were found stabbed to death at their home near Lafayette Place and Coriander Way by officers doing a welfare check Saturday morning. 

Officers came to the home and forced their way inside after a family member called police to say they couldn't get a hold of the couple. 

Police say Boduch was found walking to his car at a ShopRite less than a mile from the home Saturday afternoon.
