Authorities in Pennsylvania are investigating after 73-year-old Reid and 72-year-old Miriam Beck were found dead in their Abington Township home.

Police were called to the property Tuesday night on a wellness check by a family member and came upon the husband and wife inside the residence.

Their 49-year-old daughter, Verity Beck, was found inside the home and taken into custody. She was charged with First Degree murder in their deaths, officials announced.

Authorities said Reid and Miriam’s voices were last heard on the phone January 7th. Both were found with gunshot wounds to the head. Police believe their deaths occurred on or around the 7th.

A chainsaw was also found inside the residence and, police say, the couple was found in various stages of dismemberment.

Beck is currently being held at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility. She is not eligible for bail.

An investigation into a motive is ongoing.
