Police: Mother killed two-year-old son and self in Prince George's County home


A two-year-old boy was killed by his own mother, before she took her own life Saturday night, police say.

Prince George’s County police say they were called to a townhouse on Countrywood Court in Hyattsville, at around 10 p.m. for a welfare check.

When officers arrived, they say two-year-old Joseph Wang, and 34-year- Yu Song, of Gumper Court in Glen Burnie, were with injuries to their upper bodies and were pronounced dead.

A neighbor who spoke to FOX 5’s Anjali Hemphill, says a couple with two young children was renting the home for the last several months,  but had recently moved out.

They say the home, which had a lockbox on it, was being shown to other potential renters.

The neighbor says the couple reappeared the evening of the incident, with the woman's blue car parked in front of the home.

They say they later saw the husband pull in frantically in a black Corolla and then shortly after stood in the parking lot while on the phone. The neighbor says police arrived soon after.
