NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — A 23-year-old woman has been arraigned on multiple charges in connection with the deaths of three members of a Connecticut family.

Ruth Correa could face life in prison if convicted of murder, arson and robbery charges in connection with the deaths of 56-year-old Kenneth Lindquist, 61-year-old Janet Lindquist and their 21-year-old son, Matthew.

Police found Kenneth and Janet Lindquist's bodies after a December fire at their Griswold home.

The medical examiner says the couple suffered head injuries.

Matthew Lindquist's remains were found May 5 in woods near his parents' home. Officials say he died of multiple stab wounds.

A judge Monday at her arraignment kept Correa's bail at $2.5 million.

Correa's relationship with the Lindquist family remains unclear.

Neither her public defender nor relatives commented after Monday's hearing.
