Minor accused of killing NH woman and her two kids

The arrest was announced on Thursday.

NORTHFIELD, N.H. — A minor has being charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one count of falsifying physical evidence in connection with the triple homicide of a woman and her two young children, who were found shot to death last week in Northfield, New Hampshire

The arrest was announced on in a news release Thursday by New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella, State Police Colonel Nathan Noyes, and Northfield Police Chief John Raffaelly. They didn't share the juvenile's name, age, or other identifying information, citing legal restrictions on sharing information on children charged with crimes.

Police found the bodies of 25-year-old Kassandra Sweeney and her two sons, 4-year-old Benjamin Sweeney and 1-year-old Mason Sweeney, in their Northfield residence on the morning of Aug. 3 while responding to a 911 call. Each died of a single gunshot injury, autopsies found.
