VILLA RIDGE, Mo. (AP) - Authorities in Franklin County are investigating the death of a 7-year-old girl, and the child’s mother is a suspect.

Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke says a man arrived home from work early Wednesday and found his daughter dead in a bedroom and his wife incoherent on the floor. The girl had been fatally shot. Her name has not been released.

Authorities suspect murder-suicide may have been the initial intention.

The home is near Villa Ridge.
