Searchers will return to a school in Westford, Vt., over the weekend to look for the remains of a 78-year-old grandmother who was shot to death, burned and then buried.

Vermont State Police crime scene investigators are looking for the remains of Mary Wilcox, a woman who had Alzheimer's disease and was reported missing by her family three years ago. On Thursday, police charged her daughter _ 59-year-old Jeanne Sevigny _ with killing her. Her grandson, 30-year-old Greg Sevigny, is charged with disposing of the remains.

The search is centered on a wooded area behind Westford Elementary School.

State police also collected items from Sevigny's home on Friday and sent them to the state crime lab for analysis but would not say what those items were.
