Woman, 2 children found slain after brother was hit

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A woman and her two young children were found slain at the home of her brother, who had run onto a highway hours earlier and was struck by a dump truck, according to authorities and news reports.

Tricia Doyle, 30, her daughter Gillian, 4, and 2-year-old son, James, were found dead Monday night at the home of Doyle's brother, Chris Bernard.

Police called the deaths homicides but declined to say how the three died pending autopsy results expected Wednesday. There had been no arrests, and authorities declined to comment on what might have happened.

About three hours before the bodies were found, Bernard, 35, was struck by a dump truck on I-93, WMUR-TV reported. He was in good condition.
