A Pennsylvania woman has been arrested and charged with murder after police found the dismembered bodies of her elderly parents in their shared home.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said police conducted a welfare check in Jenkintown on Tuesday after a family member said they had not heard from the elderly couple in more than a week. Then they found their daughter Verity Beck inside, along with a body “tightly wrapped in a white sheet” and evidence of a second dead person.
