12-year-old boy stabs mother to death, slashes sister, police say

ASHLAND, Ore. - A 12-year-old is accused of  stabbing his mother and sister Tuesday morning, inside their Ashland, Oregon home. The boy is in custody, but police said the investigation is far from over.

"This is a real tragedy," Chief Tighe O'Meara of the Ashland Police Department says, "and it's going to affect a lot of people in a really profoundly negative way."

When police arrived they found 52-year-old Pamela Wolosz dead, and her 16 year-old daughter alive, but seriously hurt.

Police said the 12-year-old son and brother of the victims stabbed them multiple times with a chef's knife.

The boy is being held at a juvenile detention center and could be tried as an adult.
