NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Candles and flowers decorate a stairway outside a Northern California apartment where a 3-year-old girl was found dead.
The Napa Valley Register reports (http://bit.ly/1gGtga0) that more than 50 people gathered outside the home in Napa on Sunday night for a vigil to remember the girl.
The girl's mother, 23-year-old Sara Krueger, and Krueger's boyfriend, 26-year-old Ryan Scott Warner, were arrested earlier in the day on suspicion of murder with special circumstances of assault on a child resulting in death.
John Krueger, Sara Krueger's father, attended Sunday night's vigil. According to the Register, he embraced relatives and friends with tears in his eyes and said he was going through the saddest part of any grandparent's life.
An autopsy on the girl, who has not been identified by authorities, is scheduled for Monday.
