Police have charged the son of a wealthy Katy couple with their murder.

Michael and Lynda Walton were found, shot to death in their Lake Pointe Estates home Thursday, by their 24-year-old son.  After viewing home video surveillance and security footage from the gated community, police quickly began searching for the couple's 20-year-old son Ryan.

Police say surveillance footage showed Ryan leaving the house Thursday morning in his parent's blue BMW.  It was the blue BMW that was spotted by an off-duty police officer at 2-M's Malt-N-Burger in Rosenberg where he was later arrested.

Ryan Walton has been charged with two counts of murder and is being held at the Fort Bend County Jail without bond.
