WINCHESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Winchester woman has been found dead in her home and police are looking for her son.

Police conducting a well-being check found Barbara McAveeney dead in her condominium on Tuesday morning.

The Middlesex district attorney’s office says an arrest warrant has been issued for her son, 46-year-old Matthew McAveeney. The warrant is for charges including armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon on a person 60 years of age or older, and cruelty to animals.

Police said because of a smell coming from her second-floor unit, they said they think she was killed days ago.

Anyone who knows of Matthew McAveeney’s whereabouts is urged to contact police.
