MUMBAI: A 70-year-old woman was today found murdered at her son's house in suburban Chembur, police said.   

The victim, Chandrabhaga Kharat, was alone at home as her son and the daughter-in-law had left at 11 am for work. She had come to live with her son here from Nashik a month ago as she needed to get her eyes tested, police said.
