2 Conn. deaths blamed on carbon monoxide poisoning

Posted: Updated:

MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) - Meriden police say they suspect carbon monoxide poisoning killed two people found inside a snow-covered car parked in a driveway.

The bodies of a 20-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman were found Sunday morning. Police told the Record-Journal of Meriden there were paths shoveled alongside the vehicle, but the rest of it was covered with snow and the windows were rolled up.

The victims' names haven't been released. Autopsies are planned. If their deaths are related to the blizzard, that would bring the number of storm-related deaths in the state to seven.

State police on Monday released the name of a 79-year-old Prospect woman killed by a hit & run driver while she was using her snow-blower Friday night. Troopers are still seeking the driver of the car that hit Mary McCormack.
