Murder charges have been filed in the death of a mother and daughter in Palos Park. Police sources say the husband of the daughter and another person are the suspects.

Both women had been strangled and their bodies were set on fire inside a trunk. The burning PT Cruiser was found in the Cap Sauers Holdings Nature Preserve in southwest suburban Palos Park.

The Cook County Medical Examiner is waiting on dental records to confirm the women's identities. Police say the victims, in their 70s and 50s, are from the Chicago area.
