Mother, 2 kids fatally stabbed in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say a mother and her two children have been stabbed to death at an apartment in Ohio’s capital city.

Officers were called to the sprawling apartment complex on the north side of Columbus at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Officials say they suspect an ex-boyfriend of the mother broke into the apartment and fatally stabbed them. Police say the woman’s current boyfriend arrived at the home afterward, and both men scuffled.

Police say both men were injured and have been hospitalized.

The children are believed to be ages 6 to 8.

Yellow crime-scene tape was hung over a large area surrounding the beige three-story apartment building in steadily falling snow Tuesday. Officers on the scene declined to comment but said the agency expected to have a statement later.
