Montco mother and son a possible murder-suicide

Authorities were investigating yesterday the deaths of a 30-year-old woman from Springfield Township, Montgomery County, and her 3-year-old son as a possible murder-suicide.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said the bodies were found at 6:30 a.m. yesterday in the bedroom of the Bent Lane house where the two lived. She withheld the names of the two and would not say whether the woman's husband, who was the father of the child, was home at the time. She said authorities do not regard him as a suspect.

Ferman said investigators expect to have autopsy results next week. She did not know whether the couple had other children. - Derrick Nunnally
