BELMONT, the Bronx — A woman and her 14-year-old son were found dead in the Bronx on Sunday afternoon, police said.

Marisol Ortiz, 51, was found in one room, police said. She'd been stabbed in the head and suffered blunt trauma to the head.

Alanche Delorbe was killed the day before his birthday.

Teenage son Alanche Delorbe was found in a different room. He also suffered blunt trauma to the head, officials said. The teen would have celebrated his birthday on Monday, a family member said.
