A man has been charged with two counts of attempted murder after two people were found with multiple injuries at a house in Wiltshire.
James Wells, 42, of Seymour Road, Lee-on-the-Solent, was charged after the attack in Shalbourne, near Marlborough, on Monday.
He remains in custody and is due before Bristol Magistrates' Court on Thursday.
The victims, a woman in her 60s and a man in his 70s, were both known to the suspect, Wiltshire Police have said.
Insp Chris Martin of Wiltshire Police said: "There is likely to be a police presence at the address until the end of the week as we continue with our investigation, so if you live locally please do not be alarmed by this."
