Police: Woman, child found slain inside Glens Falls apartment

GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (AP) Authorities say they're investigating the slayings of a woman and young child whose bodies have been found inside an upstate New York home.

Police tell The Post-Star that the bodies were discovered Friday in an apartment in the city of Glens Falls.

Glens Falls Police Chief Tony Lydon says they were found by a person who went to the home to check on family members. Police haven't released the victim's names or how they were killed.

Officials also haven't said if a suspect has been identified.

Yellow police crime scene tape is strung around the two-story apartment home where the bodies were found. A next-door neighbor told the newspaper a woman was heard screaming at the home Thursday night.
