Oldest nuclear family 'murdered'

18 November 2008, Julian Siddle for BBC News:

"The oldest genetically identifiable nuclear family met a violent death, according to analysis of remains from 4,600-year-old burials in Germany."

"Writing in the journal PNAS, researchers say the broken bones of these stone age people show they were killed in a struggle."

Comparisons of DNA from one grave confirm it contained a mother, father, and their two children. "
