QUINCY (CBS) – A Quincy woman lit a charcoal grill indoors, then blocked the only escape route, in an attempt to kill herself and her son, investigators said Friday.

Li Rong Zhang survived; her 8-year-old son did not.

WBZ’s Jim Smith reports.

Brandon Yang and his mother were both found unconscious Thursday afternoon in a second floor bedroom of their apartment. Prosecutors said that a charcoal hibachi was burning in the room. The door to the room was blocked with a large dresser.

Zhang was charged with first degree murder in third grader’s death.

WBZ-TV’s Peg Rusconi reports.
