      Police: Death of pregnant NY woman double homicide

      Police are investigating the death of a 19-year-old pregnant woman found in a fire-ravaged Troy apartment building as a double homicide.

      Local media report that Vanessa Milligan was found dead after a fire in her apartment on April 4, a week before her due date.

      Police on Friday say they believe the fire was intentionally set and that the case is being investigated as a double homicide. Because the baby was full term, state law allows for a double homicide charge.

      Police would not say how or when Milligan died or how the fire was set.
