Police say a man fatally beat his son and the boy's mother in their Long Island apartment before killing himself by jumping in front of a LIRR train.
Suffolk County police say 42-year-old Scott Maxwell was killed by a Long Island Rail Road train Wednesday morning. The tracks run near his house.
They say officers who went to his East Northport home found the bodies of 47-year-old Ann Pabo and 13-year-old Connele Pabo.
Police said the apartment had a history of calls. However, they characterized them as harassment rather than violence.
They said Ann Pabo had been granted an order of protection against Maxwell. The couple was not married.
