Police Finish Investigation into Suspected Burwell Murder-Suicide

Posted: Updated:

The state police have finished their investigation into a suspected murder-suicide in Burwell.

Two-year-old Aimee Melling and her father Christopher Melling were found dead in their home in January. The bodies we're found after neighbors reported a lack of activity at their home.

The autopsy confirmed both died as a result of shotgun wounds and police said Christopher Melling pulled the trigger, confirming their original suspicions.

Just days before the bodies were recovered, Tammy Melling, Aimee's mother, was arrested for allegedly threatening to strike Christopher during an argument. She was never considered a suspect by police during the investigation.

No criminal charges have been filed in relation to the deaths.
