Two Nepean brothers now orphans after parents die in murder-suicide: A 12-YEAR-OLD Nepean boy awoke to find both his parents dead yesterday morning in the aftermath of a shocking murder-suicide. The boy and his 14-year-old brother, both now orphans, appear to have slept through a violent argument that ended when their father shot their mother twice with a hunting rifle and then took his own life. Twelve-year-old Kevin MacDonald called 911 just before 8 a.m. after finding his mother, Brenda MacDonald, 52, shot twice in her second-floor bedroom. He then found his 51-year-old father Bruce in a first-floor office with a rifle wound to his head.
