AUSTIN, Minn. (KTTC) -- Funeral services for a father and son killed early Friday will be held Tuesday at Crane Community Chapel in Austin.

Police found the body of Dennis Seberson, 86, in his front yard sometime after 3 a.m. Friday.  An autopsy showed he died from blunt force trauma.  The suspect in the murder was the victim's 46-year-old son Craig.  He was killed in a high speed chase through three counties that ended on Highway 13 south of Waseca when he crashed.  Officers had deployed stop-sticks at the scene after chasing his car at speeds reaching 130 miles an hour.

Craig's brother Kelly says he was struggling with mental illness.

"He was having a very difficult time," said Kelly Seberson.  "We don't care for the mentally ill in this country.  Instead of gun control, we should be improving mental health services."

Kelly Seberson said their father was much-loved in the Austin community. He had worked at Hormel Foods for 40 years before his retirement.  Dennis Seberson will receive military honors from Austin Post 91 of the American Legion.

Services for both father and son will be held Tuesday at Crane Community Chapel in Austin, with Pastor Dale Christianson officiating.  Visitation will be held before the service from 12 to 2 p.m.
