WHISPERING PINES, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- After months of investigation, the Gila County Sheriff’s Office say they arrested a man accused of killing his parents last year.
Deputies say 19-year-old Hunter Stanfield was taken into custody on Tuesday for the murder of Chase Stanfield, 39, and Gail Stanfield, 50. On Oct. 27, 2022, the Gila County Sheriff’s Office was called to a home in the Whispering Pines subdivision just north of Payson. Deputies say a man and woman, later identified as Chase and Gail, were found dead in the home from multiple gunshot wounds.

Hunter was booked into the Gila County jail and faces two first-degree murder charges.
