An Iowa teenager found by police soaked in blood is charged with killing his parents with a knife and ax because he wanted to “take charge of his life,” authorities said.
Ethan Orton, 17, told Cedar Rapids police officers he killed his parents after they responded to the Orton home just after 2 a.m Thursday following reports of a suspicious person in the area, the department said. He was found sitting outside the home “covered in blood.”
“I don’t know if he was expecting the police to come. When we arrived, the officer who encountered him first described him as being calm,” Cedar Rapids Police Chief Wayne Jerman told local TV affiliate KWWL-TV.
While officers checked on Orton, the teen allegedly told them he had killed his parents.
Inside the home, the officers found the parents dead in the living room. They were identified as Casey Arthur Orton, 42, and Misty Dawn Scott Slade, 41.
Orton faces two counts of first-degree murder. The case has been filed in adult court, police said. He is being held at the Linn County Detention Center on a $2 million bond. Charges obtained by KWWL said Orton used a knife to stab his parents. He then allegedly used an ax to kill his mother when he realized she was still alive.
“Sick to my stomach. You just don’t think this kind of thing can happen, and you just don’t think it can happen in your neighborhood,” neighbor Jean Garrett told the news outlet. “And here it is in our neighborhood, and we have a nice neighborhood. It’s just really hard to process. I still remember her laughing and joking with me a couple weeks ago.”
This latest brutal slaying came a month after a 20-year-old man was charged with killing his parents and sister in Cedar Rapids. Alex Jackson, a college student, initially told investigators a masked intruder committed the triple murder before he was arrested and charged.

A horrible way to die. He should get the chair. What is going on in this country with
our young people??? Are they on drugs or just mentally deranged??
They are the product of liberal public schools
Nope they are disconnected from reality because of too much computer gaming and not enough parental discipline because of the leftist, socialist mentality!
because he wanted to “take charge of his life,
now he’s ” charged” with his life……. so what did he accomplish? So sad.
Unfortunately for the well brought up sane teenagers today the majority of them are sick twisted out of control illiterate pieces of crap, really worthless!
They see themselves as victims of who the hell knows what, lazy, foul mouthed scums. Death penalty for these types of kids and then maybe they’ll start seeing that the law is the rule, and by committing these types of crimes your life will end to .
These kids have no chance today. The school systems are broken. The leaders in this country are disgusting. The liberal media is dangerous to the young minds. Social media is removing our First Amendment freedom of speech so these kids can only hear what social media wants them to hear and learn. Bottom line is these kids their growth mentally physically spiritually it’s going to depend on the parents the grandparents and hopefully a church of their choice

The hurt will go on!
And now you spout your thpe of hate thats indicative of the hate trump and his hinchman are spreading, I hope you find peace,
Trump never promoted anything like what that person said. Evil has no party. Trump has never wished anyone dead but some Democrats sure did and said it out loud.
Absolutely correct.Democrats love their evil lying and cheating ways.
Trump? You are DISGUSTING! Liberals are the ones with their satan worship and filth.Put the blame where it goes. Stop the lies. Democrat-the party of blackface and death.
That’s a terrible thing to say. You shouldn’t think that of anyone. He is still one of God’s creation.
😂I can’t believe this comment hasn’t been purged!!! I made a comment on Twitter about Fauci in regards to experimenting on the beagles. All I said was he needs to be hung and they shut me down😂😂😂
Throw the book at the little bastard. Make an example of him for the consequences of killing his parents.
Interesting…. I was talking to a 43 year today about the low class, totally inappropriate lap dancing and Hooters attired girls at the high school in Kentucky and how one of mothers claimed that “people needed to keep their mouths shut” and that there was “nothing” done of a “sexual nature.”
Guessing that this “mother” was probably 40 to 42 or 43 years old, the person I was talking to readily admitted that his generation (that generation) were the absolute worst parents so far.
As a 60+ year old baby boomer, I quickly had to take equal credit for spawning his generation…and obviously not teaching them crap about parenting!!!!
I agree. The public schools were working on the parents of today back then.I know-I saw what was going on and removed my children, other parents didn’t care.Now here they are with their lap dancing hooters attired girls-I hope they r real proud of the trash they have raised-not.
What is wrong with that young man?!
Liberal public schools, leftist content all over TV and internet, social media.
Are you sure it wasn’t a girl named Lizzy Bordon and she didn’t give him forty whacks ?
He wanted to take charge of his life? At 17, now he get’s to play with the Big Boy’s..
I’m sure they will be waiting..

To respond to the young Americans killing
Their parents and running amok. Remember back in the 60.70.80.s. When the government made it illegal to punish your kids. This is why this is all happening
Now we have generations of spoiled adults
And children. And no brains. And lazy. And
Full of ignorant feelings. And now that all you whites in America with your hate your own race. And feel sorry for the plight of
Foreigners and give them all the money jobs welfare. And feel sorry for the communist and bring them to America and
Give them all our country for free . You dumb Americans. Deserve what happens
To America you all deserve hell.
Hell is coming, that’s for sure. Americans have sat back and allowed this to happen. Btw-I’m white and always have been the first to tell anyone how absolutely PROUD I am of my race and my white forefathers who built America. The public schools and I did not get along ( surprise!) so I homeschooled my children and taught them the same but I couldn’t do much about all the other parents who didn’t care.I have gotten more conservatives registered to vote and they DO vote.
