Authorities are continuing their investigation into the deaths of a husband and wife and their infant twin sons, all found dead in their Arlington home.

Mei Kum Jones, her husband, Scott Jones, both 43, and their sons, Colt and Cameron, were found Monday after police were asked to check on them. The twins would have turned a year old on Nov. 26.

A spokeswoman for Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said Tuesday that authorities are awaiting the results of autopsies by the chief medical examiner's office before saying how the family died. She stressed that the killings were an isolated incident and said authorities are not looking for any suspects.

A relative said the couple was having marital problems.

Police had been called to the home before — in 2010 when Scott Jones allegedly threatened to commit suicide, according to an incident report Arlington Police released Tuesday.

Scott Jones was hospitalized after the incident.

Scott Jones, a paramedic, had also recently filed a lawsuit against his former employer, according to his lawyer.
