SPRING GROVE, Pa. (AP) — Police say a Pennsylvania woman was killed but three young children who were home at the time were unharmed. No arrests were immediately announced.

Southwestern Regional Police said 24-year-old Samantha Stein was found dead in her Spring Grove home by her boyfriend on Saturday morning.

Sgt. Jamie Stalcup said three children under the age of 11 were home at the time and are currently with other relatives.

Stalcup declined to release the circumstances of the slaying but said the death “was not random.” He said there’s no reason for other residents to be concerned.

Stalcup said the homicide could be related to other recent crimes, including an arson at the residence next-door, where the victim and her boyfriend had planned to move, and vandalism of the victim’s cars.
