    When family members decided Monday's burglary of 75-year-old Frank Dusenka's home in Chisago City, Minn., was an inside-the-family job, they didn't wait for police to investigate, according to court documents filed this week. Instead, Dusenka's son, Bradley Anthony Dusenka, and son-in-law, Marcus Lee Clay, allegedly took matters into their own hands. Specifically, they're accused of taking an ax handle and a boat oar into their own hands, kidnapping their 25-year-old nephew and beating him so severely that he spent most of this week in the hospital.
