ROME, N.Y. (UPDATED) -- A Rome man is accused of stabbing his parents to death on Old Oneida Road in Rome on Monday.

Just before noon, state police were dispatched to a home on Old Oneida Road, in the outer district in Rome, to check the welfare of a person who was standing at the edge of his driveway and appeared to be covered in blood.

Kyle Kirk

When troopers arrived, they found 30-year-old Kyle Kirk with blood on his clothing. As Troopers and EMS were interviewing Kyle, they discovered a man lying across the driveway suffering from apparent stab wounds.

The victim was identified as 60-year-old Howard J. Kirk III, and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Police say Kyle lived in a trailer on the property behind his parents' home. 

As Troopers began to check the trailer for any other victims inside, they discovered 53-year-old Amanda L. Osborne, Kyle's mother, also deceased with multiple stab wounds. 

Kyle is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, an A-1 felony, and one count of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a class D felony.

The investigation is continuing.
