Verity Beck, 49, was arrested and charged with first-degree and third-degree murder for killing her parents. Their bodies were found in their Jenkintown home on the 1100 block of Beverly Road Tuesday evening.

Additional details:

Miriam Beck, Verity’s mother, was a former Lower Moreland High School nurse.

Verity’s brother arrived home Tuesday evening and talked to her for about 30 minutes; according to officials, Verity told him that things at the home had “been bad.”

Investigators believe the murders likely took place on January 7, and that Verity put parts of her parents into two different trash cans.
