A woman and her two children were found dead in a burned barn in Lewis County earlier this week and we've now learned the names of those three victims.
 
The State Medical Examiner's Office said 32-year-old Beth Ann Kraus, her 5-year-old son Kaden Edward Kraus and her 3-year-old daughter Kiera Marie Kraus were found in the burned out barn on Crooked Run near Alum Bridge.  
 
The woman's husband was the one who found the burned barn. When he called emergency officials, he said he believed his family may have been in it. Investigators think the fire started sometime between 7:30 Sunday night and 7:30 Monday morning. 5 News spoke to some neighbors Tuesday who were shocked by the news, saying it was something they never expected.
 
This incident is still under investigation. We expect to hear from investigators in the next few days with more information.
