THORNTON - A Thornton woman and her son have been arrested on accessory charges in the murders of two women whose bodies were found in Weld County after they were believed to be kidnapped.

Deputies said Thursday 41-year-old Rosann O'Donnell and 23-year-old Justin O'Donnell were arrested in connection with the deaths of Alisha Johns and her mother, Sherri Pachello.

Authorities believe Johns' husband, 37-year-old Cimmeron Johns, killed both women on Feb. 6 before killing himself.

Four days before her arrest, Rosann told The Denver Post Cimmeron Johns had been staying with her and told her he killed his wife and mother-in-law.

Rosann O'Donnell bond was at $100, 000. Her next her court appearance is Feb. 18.
