Detectives arrived [Monday] at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center with double murder suspect Megan Hargan, who was extradited from West Virginia. Hargan, 35, is expected to be arraigned Wednesday morning for the murder of her sister and mother.

Helen Lorena Hargan, 23, and her mother, Pamela Denise Hansen Hargan, 63, were found dead on July 14 in a home in the 6700 block of Dean Drive in McLean. They had both been shot. Fairfax County detectives arrested Megan Hargan near her home in Monongalia County, West Virginia, earlier this week.

The bodies were discovered by officers after a 9-1-1 call reporting someone in the home might have been killed. Detectives determined early in the investigation that the scene was staged to appear to be a murder-suicide.
