Oklahoma City-AP) -- Authorities have released the names of a man and woman found dead Sunday inside a burning mobile home and arrested the couple's son on an unrelated charge.

The bodies of Michael Duane Owen and LaDonna Owen were found inside the burning mobile home in rural Grady County, west of Newcastle. Both had been shot to death.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kym Koch says the two were identified with fingerprints.

Koch says investigators later arrested Dustin Owen in Oklahoma County on a weapons charge after talking to him about his parents death. Koch says Dustin Owen had a loaded gun in his possession that turned out to be stolen.

Koch declined to say whether the younger Owen is a suspect in his parents' death.
