An Air National Guard member and her two young children apparently found murdered in their home in New York City on Saturday – seven years after the mother was sworn in as a US citizen and began her American dream.
Alla Ausheva, 36 and toddlers Ivan, 2 and Elia, 3, were found dead in a home in Staten Island at noon. 10:45, the New York Post reported, referring to law enforcement sources.
Ausheva's husband, 36-year-old Shane Walker was arrested for their deaths, but from Saturday night no complaints were filed against him.
Investigators responded to the home on Saturday morning to smoke filling the house. Sources told the news outlet that the children were found drowned in a bathtub, while Ausheva suffered from face and head trauma. She was apparently found down on a bed.
