Man Suspected Of Killing Grandmother, Aunt

PRESTON, England, Aug. 9 (UPI) — A young man was being questioned Monday in northern England after the bodies of his grandmother and aunt were found in their burning house, police said.

The dead women were identified as Maureen Allen, 79, and her daughter, Geraldine Allen, 56, the Daily Mirror reported. Maureen Allen had lived in the house in Fulwood near Preston in Lancashire for a quarter century.

The fire was reported early Monday morning.

“We were woken up by the sound of fire engines,” a neighbor who did not want to be identified told the Mirror. “A while later I saw a man wearing handcuffs being put into a van. There was no struggle. He just walked calmly in.”

Police said the man was being held on suspicion of murder.

Allen had been stabbed many times, the BBC reported. Neighbors said she and her nephew moved in with her mother recently.
