ASHTABULA -- Police have a suspect in custody in the murders of a mother and daughter in their Kain Avenue home, near state Route 20.

Police say the mother, 40, was found with an apparent gunshot wound and the daughter, 20, was found "with a traumatic injury."

Police say the women were found about 2:30 a.m. Monday by "relatives that had access to the home."

Police say they found a man sleeping in the home when they arrived. Police took him into custody and said they had responded to domestic violence calls at the home in the past. 

The Ashtabula County Coroner's Office said it's not clear how long the bodies were lying in the home but relatives said they saw the women Friday.

Neither the names of the victims nor the suspect have been released.
