A 55-year-old man is facing serious allegations after being arrested Thursday morning in connection with the death of two people in York County.

Andrew Donald Buchert is charged with two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of unlawful disposing of a body.

He is being held without bond in the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail.

York-Poquoson Sheriff’s deputies were called to the 200 block of Aspen Boulevard around 5 p.m. Wednesday to check the welfare of two people, according to a YPSO news release.

There, they found two people dead – and foul play was suspected, authorities said.

Authorities said the two and Buchert all lived in the same home.

Further details about the incident, including the identities and ages of the two people, were not immediately released – detectives said the case remains under investigation.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the incident to call the Crime Line at 888-LOCK-U-UP or call the sheriff’s office at 757-890-3621 and reference case No.  2001319.
