(York) -- Authorities allege a woman found dead in her prison cell last week blamed her husband and co-defendant for a double slaying before hanging herself.

Search warrants state police cited a statement by 32-year-old Veronique Henry, who was found dead Thursday morning in York County Prison.

Corporal Jonathan Colarusso said she told investigators hours before her death that 40-year-old Paul Henry III shot and killed 31-year-old Foday Cheeks and 26-year-old Danielle Taylor on Tuesday at a Fawn Township home.
