CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Police have released the identities of those killed in a domestic related murder early Sunday morning.
36-year-old Carrie P. Egland, 40-year-old Scott T. Allred, and his 7-year-old child, were found dead by officers inside a home in the 13100 block of Stockleigh Drive just after 1:00 a.m.
Chesterfield officers were called to the home by Pennsylvania officers who had been given an advisory to check the household.
Police say Carrie P. Egland's estranged husband, 37-year-old Leonard J. Egland was soon developed as a suspect in the incident. He was also a suspect in the homicide of his mother-in-law in Pennsylvania, where he twice exchanged gunfire with police officers. Pennsylvania police later found him in a field in Warwick Township, dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot.
Authorities say Egland had recently returned from war service.
