An Iowa man wanted for the murder of his parents has been arrested in northeast Oklahoma.

55-year-old Russell Overlin is in the Ottawa County jail. He's from Mitcheville, Iowa and has been on the run for two weeks. He's accused of murdering his parents, 81-year-old Gilbert Overlin and 71-year-old Naomi Overlin, then stuffing them in a barrel.

The Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force tracked Overlin and arrested him as he left a hotel.
