Man held after woman, teenage grandson found stabbed to death

MINNEAPOLIS — Relatives say the woman found fatally stabbed along with her grandson in Minneapolis was a “mother to everybody.”

Family members identify the victims as 57-year-old Beatrice Wilson and her teenage grandson. A relative said Wilson was a Liberian immigrant who worked at the Minneapolis Veterans Home and was raising three grandchildren.

The Star Tribune (http://tinyurl.com/8j72x63 ) reports police restrained grieving friends and relatives as they arrived at the victims' home northwest of downtown Monday. Some screamed and collapsed on the lawn in front of the two-story duplex in the quiet neighborhood.

Police in Waterloo, Iowa are holding a Minnesota man wanted for questioning in the deaths. He lives at the home where the victims were found.
