Son charged with murder months after bodies found in fire
ATLANTA (AP) — A man has been accused of killing his mother and her husband, who were found strangled and left in a burning Atlanta home last summer.
News outlets report 47-year-old Keith Sylvester was arrested Saturday.
He is charged with two counts of murder in connection with the July 3 deaths of 67-year-old Harry Hubbard and 65-year-old Deborah Hubbard.
A medical examiner said the couple died before the fire from strangulation and thermal injuries.
WGRZ-TV reports Sylvester is the oldest son of Deborah Hubbard, who had moved from Buffalo, New York, to Atlanta with her husband less than a year before their deaths.
It is unclear whether Sylvester has an attorney who could comment on the charges.
