Home Invasion in Va. Leaves Woman Dead, Son Injured

Posted:

MADISON HEIGHTS, Va. (AP) - The Amherst County Sheriff's Office says a Madison Heights woman was killed and her son critically injured in a home invasion.

Media reports say 81-year-old Norma Jean Freeman was attacked at her home early Thursday and later died at the hospital. Her 63-year-old son, Allen H. Freeman Jr., is in critical condition at Lynchburg General Hospital.

The sheriff's office says the attacks involved "blunt force trauma."

Amherst County Sheriff Jimmy Ayers called their injuries "horrendous."

No one has been charged in the deadly attack, which investigators said could have been a random act of violence.

The Virginia State Police are assisting in the investigation.
