RIVERVIEW, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a Tampa Bay area woman killed her husband's parents following an argument over an upcoming court date for their son.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office reports that deputies found 70-year-old Virgil Best and 69-year-old Shirley Best dead in their Riverview home Thursday morning after receiving a call from the couple's son.

Detectives learned that 30-year-old Marisol Best had been at the victims' home Wednesday. She told detectives she became angry with the couple because they were negative about her husband's upcoming court date. According to a news release, Best told investigators that she retrieved a handgun from her vehicle, returned to the house and shot both victims.

Best was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. She was being held without bail. Jail records didn't list an attorney.
