Son-in-law charge in deadly Tennessee package bombing

Police say they've arrested the person who left a package outside a Tennessee home that exploded after being opened, killing a retired couple.

The suspect is the couple's son-in-law, 49-year-old Richard Parker.

Police say he personally delivered the package to Jon Setzer, a retired lawyer, who was killed almost immediately after opening it on Monday.
