(AP) – Authorities say a mother and her 5-year-old

daughter whose bodies were found after a house fire in rural southeastern Kansas died from gunshot wounds, victims of a double murder-suicide.

The woman’s husband was found in a vehicle outside the home, dead of a self-inflicted injury.

The Bourbon County Sheriff’s office said Monday that autopsies determined 30-year-old Terry Lynn Prestley and her daughter died from gunshot wounds. Their bodies were discovered Thursday in the wreckage of their home near Fort Scott.

The sheriff’s office said in a news release that the man whose body was found in a vehicle outside the home was 30-year-old Donald “Bryce” Prestley. Authorities did not say how the man killed himself.

Authorities refused to elaborate on other details of the investigation.
