JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Police are investigating the death of a woman and her 5-year-old child in Jersey City Heights as suspicious.

The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office says the mother and child were found in their apartment Wednesday evening. They were pronounced dead at a hospital.

A neighbor tells the Jersey Journal (https://bit.ly/1GxJJWb ) the mother wasn’t moving and the child appeared limp as emergency workers pulled her from the home.

Assistant Prosecutor Gene Rubino says carbon monoxide tests on the home were negative.
