Pennsylvania mother and daughter accused of killing five family members


The 45-year-old woman and her 19-year-old daughter will each be charged with five counts of homicide and one count of conspiracy, according to the district attorney's office.

Attorney General Matthew Weintraub said the mother and daughter were residents of the apartment in which the five relatives were found. Among the dead are the two children of the mother, sister and binoculars of her sister, aged 9, Weintraub said at a press conference.

"It's a terrible tragedy," he said. "I just talked to the family of five dead and we are all heartbroken."

"I would have liked to have better news to report them, but it's important, so we wanted to go out … and make sure everyone knew that the people who committed these atrocious acts are now in detention and will have to pay for their crimes, "he said.

Weintraub said that an investigation was ongoing on the deaths of the victims.
