Macfield’s senior mother charged with murder in her son’s shooting death

An Upper Macfield woman who police said shot her two sons in their sleep last week, now charged with first-degree murder, after the boys died of their injuries late last week.

Trine Nguyen was found with drugs, ammunition and a warrant in her car when police arrested her hours after the shooting, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday.

“Please call 911! My children died in their bed at 119 Timber Ridge Rd 18940,” the note was found in her pickup truck, according to police.

On Monday, Nguyen, 38, was charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder, two felonies, as well as misdemeanor possession of a crime instrument and drug possession. Nguyen was initially charged with attempted murder.

Township police and county investigators said Nguyen shot her two sons, 13-year-old Jeffrey and 9-year-old Nelson Tenney, at their Timber Ridge home on the morning of May 2. They were in their family. Attorney General Matt Weintraub told reporters later that day that the boys were not expected to survive their injuries, and that they were being kept on life support until their organs could be donated.
