As officials continue the investigation into a suspected murder-suicide of a Burwell man and his two-year-old daughter discovered earlier this week... another angle to the story has emerged; the mother of the child had been booked into jail just a few days earlier.
Tammy Melling was arrested by Burwell police last Friday and was booked into the Valley County Jail on a domestic assault charge and for menacing threats. She bonded out the next day.
The body of 31-year old Christopher Melling and his 2-year-old daughter Aimee were found Tuesday afternoon. They had been seen on the previous Saturday, but neighbors grew concerned after a lack of activity in the house despite lights being on for at least 24 hours.
Investigators continue to suspect a murder-suicide and are awaiting autopsy results.
