The mother involved in the apparent murder suicide of her two children has been named locally.

Jeyavani Vageswaran, 33, and her two sons aged five and seven months, were found dead at the family home in Woodgrange Close, Kenton last week.

It is believed husband and father, named by neighbours as Sakthivel Vageswaran, came home in the evening of Thursday January 9, to find his wife and children dead.

The death of the two boys is being treated as murder and detectives say they are not seeking anyone else in connection with the deaths.

Police are awaiting formal identification and the post mortem results of the two boys.
