A teenager arrested and charged by Northfield police on August 11 is suspected of carrying out the August 3 murders of Kassandra Sweeney and her two sons.
The child will likely be tried as a juvenile and charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one count of falsifying physical evidence.
According to Thursday’s announcement by Attorney General John M. Formella, State Police Colonel Nathan Noyes and Northfield Police Commissioner John Raffaelly, Kassandra Sweeney, 25, and her two children, Benjamin and Mason, who were 4 and 1, were in a triple homicide killed.
In response to a 911 call for help, authorities arrived just after 11:30am last Wednesday and found the three victims dead at their home.
A bouquet of flowers marks the home where Kassandra Sweeney and her two sons were murdered on August 3rd. NH AG’s office, meanwhile, said a juvenile has been charged with first-degree murder on three counts and one charge of falsifying physical evidence linked to their murders.
Youth guidelines, which protect the identity of minors and prohibit the release of additional information in circumstances affecting them, were cited as the rationale for not releasing further information about the minor.
It is uncertain if the Sweeney family knew the child or possessed other information that would have enabled them to identify him, such as B. his age.
