DOVER, N.H. (AP) — A man charged with killing his wife and father in Dover, New Hampshire was due court Tuesday afternoon, but his arraignment was postponed. Jeramie Colella, 44, was arrested Monday for the murders of his wife, 43-year-old Joanna Colella and his father, 69-year-old Francis Colella.

Their bodies were found in a home on Tideview Drive Monday morning. The causes of their deaths have not been revealed yet. Autopsies will be done on Wednesday. A neighbor told WBZ-TV she heard “two loud bangs” between 7:30 and 8 p.m. Sunday.
