BURKE, Va. (AP) - Police have identified a 22-year-old northern Virginia woman who was found slain 2 miles away from where a man of the same age was killed.

Fairfax County police say the woman found dead Friday in the backyard of a home in Burke was 22-year-old Kedest Simeneh of Springfield.

Police are looking into whether her death is related to the slaying of 22-year-old Henok Yohannes. His body was found inside his home in Springfield on Thursday night.

Police say both victims suffered trauma to the upper body, and autopsies are being conducted. Police say they don’t believe the slayings to be random, but they have not released details about the relationship between the victims or why they might have been killed.
