BROOKLYN - Police say a young mother of two was found murdered in her bedroom Thursday morning on Lott Avenue.

The woman, 25-year-old Michelle Fernandez, lived in an apartment with her two daughters and mother. The family says Hernandez was last seen alive in the apartment arguing with her boyfriend Wednesday night. Her body was found by her mother the next morning.

"She's 25 years old," says Keisha Blunt, a cousin of the victim. " She's young still and her life has been taken."
