The deceased was the daughter of Boban Matthew and Binci couple, from Thiruvalla and had two brothers. The family had arrived in the US just 4 months ago after living in Muscat.
Reports from Montgomery said, Mariam was asleep when she was shot dead by a shooter, who is said to be a resident of their house.
Montgomery Police have registered a case and further investigations going on. It may be noted that earlier this month, Sajan Mathew, a businessman from Kerala, was shot dead by a 15-year-old boy during a robbery attempt.
