Authorities say Bedford mother likely shot, killed daughters then turned gun on self

BEDFORD - Investigators believe a mother shot and killed her two daughters before committing suicide.

The attorney general, state police and Bedford police have identified the people who have died as Nina Obukhov, 34; Katherine Obukhov, 8; and Elizabeth Obukhov, 6.

Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas A. Andrew found the causes of death in each instance to be a gunshot wound to the head.

The manner of death of Nina Obukhov is still pending; however, the deaths appear to the result of a murder-suicide where the mother killed her two daughters and then turned the gun on herself, authorities said.

Police responded to the home at 17 Mcafee Farm Road on Saturday after someone called 911 saying they found a dead adult woman. The investigation is ongoing.
