A Connecticut woman is held on $2.5 million bond and was put on mental health watch after facing charges connected to the murder of a family in Griswold.

23-year-old Ruth Correa of Hartford is charged with three counts of murder, home invasion, 1st degree robbery and 1st degree arson.

Correa charged in connection with a fatal fire on Kenwood Road in Griswold December 20, 2017, that claimed the life of Kenneth and Janet Lindquist.

Their son Matthew, 21, was initially a person of interest in the case.

But authorities found Matthew Lindquist’s remains in the woods near the family’s home on May 5, 2018.

"It's all taken a new turn, and I think police will wrap it up soon because once they find one suspect they tend to find the other ones pretty quickly," said neighbor Bob Bromley who recorded video of the December fire.

"I'm a little more careful about locking my doors now you never know when something like that is going to be on your doorstep," he said.

Connecticut State Police told NBC 10 more arrests are expected in the case.

It’s unclear what connection, if any, Correa had to the Lindquists.

She was described in court as a mother of two with no prior arrests or convictions.

"Maybe now she’s been arrested they'll find out a little bit more, it takes time sometimes to find out what connections are to people,” said neighbor Anita Jacquin, adding "It's sad for the family sad for the neighbors it's sad for everybody.”

"We all want to know what happened and have justice served," said Bromley.
