A 44-year-old man with a history of severe mental illness has been arrested in the Jan. 18 murder of his parents in Carlsbad, officials said Friday.

Dennis Brian Gluck was arrested Thursday night by Mexican police in Ensenada on a warrant issued by the U.S. marshal's office. He was brought to the U.S. border and is now in the Vista jail on $5 million bail.

Gluck is charged with the murder of Harry Gluck, 90, and Jean Gluck, 78, in the family home in Carlsbad. The two were killed by chop wounds to the head, neck and chest, according to the county medical examiner.

Officials think Dennis Gluck had only recently moved into his parents' home after being homeless. He has an arrest record for allegedly threatening a man with a machete.
