Thursday, May 23, 2013

Action News has learned police in Delaware County are reexamining the death of man in 1993 to see if his wife was involved.

Loretta Burroughs was just charged with killing her third husband. Police say she chopped up his body and kept the remains in a closet in her Ventnor, New Jersey home.

Prosecutors say Daniel Burroughs had been killed back in 2007.

Yeadon, Pennsylvania police tell us the death of Burrough's second husband Joe Doyle had originally been classified as drug-related.

They are taking a second look in light of the New Jersey charges.
