NEW STANTON, PA – Police have arrested a 14-year-old after a mother and son were found shot to death in their home in New Stanton, Pennsylvania Wednesday morning.
CBS affiliate KDKA reports that online court paperwork says 14-year-old Jacob Remaley is being charged in connection with the double shooting of his mother and 8-year-old brother. He is facing charges of first-degree murder and criminal homicide.
Earlier in the day, emergency officials responded to the residence in the 1100-block of Thermo Village Road around 7 a.m.
It was a 911 call from inside the home that sent state police and paramedics there. Inside, the victims were found dead. They have been identified as the suspect’s mother and brother, 46-year-old Dana Remaley and 8-year-old Caleb Remaley.
Both were found in their beds. Investigators spent the day removing evidence from the house.
Jacob was taken to the State Police Barracks in Greensburg. He is awaiting arraignment on two counts each of criminal homicide and first-degree murder.
The murder weapon has been recovered, and the investigation continues.
