Police Say Man Walked Into New Hampshire After Mother Was Shot

CANAAN, Vt. -- An 80-year-old woman was shot and killed in Vermont on Wednesday morning, and her son has been taken into custody, police said.

Police said Christina Heath was shot at the Green Hill Apartments in Canaan. Witnesses told police that her son, Kenneth Heath, 59, had left the complex carrying a long gun.

Police said Kenneth Heath walked on foot across the border into New Hampshire, and he was taken into custody without incident in West Stewarstown, N.H. A shotgun was recovered when Kenneth Heath was taken into custody, police said.
Christina Heath suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen and was taken to Colebrook Hospital and later flown to Central Maine Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
