ORANGE (CBS) — Two people are under arrest in connection with a home invasion in Orange that left a 95-year-old man dead and his wife seriously injured.
Thomas Harty was found dead inside an East River Street home last week. His wife, 77-year-old Joanna Fisher, was hospitalized with serious injuries following an apparent home invasion.
After the attack, investigators said the suspects were likely driving the couple’s 2003 Toyota Corolla station wagon, which was stolen from the home.
Joshua Hart, 23 and Brittany Smith, 27, were arrested in Rockbridge County, Virginia, for the crime. The stolen vehicle was recovered at a different location in Virginia.
According to police, Hart and Smith are both from Athol.
The pair are facing charges of murder, attempted murder, home invasion, armed robbery, larceny and conspiracy. They are being held without bail.
