Juvenile charged in Northfield, NH, with murder of mother and 2 children

CONCORD, NH – A juvenile has been charged in the murders of a mother and her two young sons in New Hampshire, authorities announced Thursday.

Twenty-five-year-old Kassandra Sweeney, her 4-year-old son Benjamin and 1-year-old son Mason were found dead in their home on Wethersfield Drive in Northfield on Aug. 3. Autopsies showed each died of a single gunshot wound, and the medical examiner ruled all three deaths homicides.

The youth is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one count of falsifying physical evidence. According to state law, no other information about the juvenile can be released, Attorney General John Formella said.

Wednesday, state and local police searched a large area of ​​Route 93 in New Hampshire for evidence.

Father and husband Sean Sweeney said in a Facebook post Sunday that “things will never be ‘normal’ again.” Authorities have described him as “very cooperative and helpful in this investigation.”
