GLENS FALLS -- City police on Friday afternoon arrested a 21-year-old city man on murder charges, just hours after the bodies of a woman and her child were found in an apartment on South Street.
The adult victim and her 4-year-old child were found dead when police went to conduct a welfare check at about 10:30 a.m. By mid-afternoon, police told news outlets that they had a man in custody and identified him as Bryan Redden of Glens Falls. Gazette newsgathering partner CBS6 reported that the man was taken into custody in a vehicle on Bay Road. He hadn't been arraigned as of early Friday evening.
The names of the victims had not been released, and it wasn't clear how Redden knew the victims. Police have not said how they died.
