Foster children charged in shooting deaths of two women

WHITE BLUFF, Tenn. (AP) -- The Dickson County Sheriff's deputies have charged two teenagers with fatally shooting their foster mother and her mother-in-law.

Nashville television station WSMV is reporting that Mary Clark's 15- and 16-year-old foster children have been charged with two counts of first degree murder in the slayings.

The 38-year-old woman and 66-year-old Gail Clark, who was visiting from Orange, Massachusetts, were found shot to death in separate rooms of Mary Clark's White Bluff home early Tuesday.

There was no sign of forced entry or sign of a struggle, and one of the women may have been shot while she slept.

Officials said they believe there was a motive in the slayings, but have not said what it was.
