Connecticut Woman Charged With Grandparents Murder


A Connecticut woman is behind bars after she fatally stabbed her grandmother and grandmothers boyfriend to death.
Officers performing a welfare check on an elderly couple got more than they were expecting.
Last Sunday officers received a 911 call from Maryrose Riach,72, downstairs neighbor.
When officers arrived they found Riach and her boyfriend James Samuel Bell,63 with multiple wounds and their throats slit.

Bell was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency crews and Riach was transported to an area hospital where she died from her injuries.
They also found Riach’s granddaughter Harlee Swols,22 soaked in blood and water from the shower.
Swols who was not supposed to be at the home due to a protection order, said she caught an uber to her grandmothers to grab her things and an argument broke out.
She told authorities that things got out of hands and would not elaborate on the grisly double homicide.
She was arrested and charged with two counts of murder.
Swols remains in custody on a $2 million bond.
She is set to appear in court on August 26.
