Virginia lawmakers said a man was detained a day after his wife was found badly wounded and her infant son died.
Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release that Dennis Chambers, 60, was discovered in New Kent County, about 35 miles (56.3 km) west of Gloucester County.
The authorities have not said whether Chambers was charged with a crime.
The House of Representatives came to the home in Gloucester County because a woman and an infant were not heard from “in an unusual time period,” the Sheriff’s Office said in a press release. And that’s when they find the woman and the girl inside.
The Sheriff office said that the cause of the girl’s death and the woman’s injuries are still under investigation.
It was not immediately clear if Chambers had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
