SYRACUSE, Utah (AP) - A mother and two children have been found dead inside a Syracuse home in what authorities call a murder-suicide.

Syracuse police say 32-year-old Kyler Ramsdell-Oliva shot her daughters, 13 year-old Kenadee Oliva and 7-year-old Isabella Oliva, and then herself Tuesday evening.

Syracuse officer Erin Behm says it happened a day after the woman’s fiance packed up to move out of the house.

Police haven’t determined a motive for a shooting that Behm says left the boyfriend shocked.

She says the couple called police to the home late Monday when the boyfriend was loading up a U-Haul truck.

The couple wanted officers to referee the division of property, and Behm says they accomplished it without any squabbling.

Behm says no charges are pending or suspects outstanding in the shooting.
