Police are investigating two deaths in a Farmington home Sunday.  Maria Bollea, 97, and her son, Michael Bollea, 72, both died of carbon monoxied poisoning.  The carbon monoxide alarm was going off in their home, according to firefighters.  Rescue crews had to wait an hour and a half before entering the home.   

Arrest made in Teen Double Shooting

New Haven police have made an arrest in the weekend shootings of two teenagers.  The two 17-year-old boys were wounded Sunday afternoon in the area of Shelton Avenue and Munson Street, in the Newhallville section of the city.  The two victims have non-life threatening gun shot wounds.  They were standing outside a local store when they were shot, according to police.  A short time later, police officers arrested a 17- year-old boy, also from the Newhallville section of the city on firearms-related charges.

Watching the Security Guard

The arrest of a second security guard is prompting Colt Manufacturing in West Hartford to change its security procedures.  Jerome Phillips, 30, is accused of being involved in the theft of BlackBerry phones from the company.
