Police: Father kills 12-year-old daughter, self; burns house
AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - Police now say a Texas Panhandle man shot and killed his 12-year-old daughter, set fire to his house, then shot and killed himself.
In a statement Tuesday, Amarillo police say officers first went to the house of 45-year-old Robby Elsworth Fithen after a structure fire was reported Monday with people trapped inside.
Firefighters entered the house and found the bodies of Fithen and his daughter. Detectives later determined their deaths were a murder-suicide and an autopsy has been ordered.
No motive has been revealed.
