PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police have identified the body of a woman found handcuffed, stabbed and shot inside a Philadelphia park.

Philadelphia police say Toy Charda Bryant was found face down with a stab wound to her upper torso Tuesday morning in Fairmount Park. The 26-year-old Chester woman, who had also been shot once to the back of the head, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A couple headed to work called 911 after finding the body behind a performing arts center.

Investigators say her body had likely been dumped in the park Monday night. Authorities say she had defensive wounds on her hands.

No weapons were found.
