Police have linked this week's murders of a Long Prairie family with the killings last month of two people in Minneapolis.
Minneapolis Police Chief Robert Olson confirmed the two suspects, Christopher Earl and Jonathan Carpenter, were also suspects in the robbery and killings of an elderly man and his adult daughter in Minneapolis.
In that case, William Schwartz, 88, and Claudia Schwartz, 50, were found dead April 17 in their northeast Minneapolis home. Olson said they had been beaten and their throats slashed.
