FARIBAULT, Minn. (AP) - Authorities have identified an 8-year-old girl killed in what they believe was a murder-suicide in Faribault.

Police say the bodies of Lynnaya Stoddard-Espinoza and 33-year-old Ryan Perrizo were found inside a home Sunday, and a handgun was found next to Perrizo’s body.

Both had been shot. Autopsies are pending.

Police say Perrizo and his late wife had been legal guardians of Stoddard-Espinoza since 2012.

Local and state authorities are continuing to investigate.
