Tysons Child Murder Case Scheduled for Trial This Week

Veronica Youngblood, accused of murdering two children in Tysons, is scheduled to go to trial this Friday (Nov. 2).

Youngblood was arrested in Loudoun County and charged with murder after police entered an apartment in the 1500 block of Lincoln Circle and found two children with gunshot wounds.

One, a five-year-old girl, was pronounced dead at the scene. The other was taken to the hospital where she later died.

While authorities did not release the names of the victims, in accordance with Virginia law, it was widely reported that Youngblood was the mother of the children.

Because the case involved crimes against children, it will be prosecuted in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, according to an employee in the clerk’s office.

Youngblood will be represented by a public defender. Whether the case is open to the public will be at the discretion of the presiding judge.
