Assuming you have stored a reference to the child window in a variable called "winref" then in the opener window use this:

<body onunload="if(winref != null && !winref.closed){ winref.close(); }">

While opening the child window you need to keep track of the reference of the Child Window
eg.

var childWin;

function openWin(){
     childWin = window.open("test.html","","");
}

If you have the reference then on unload event of the body, you can close the window

eg.
function CloseChildWindow(){
     if(childWin)
          childWin.close();
}


Calling the function :
<body onUnLoad="CloseChildWindow()">
