  • Authorities say a 4-year-old central New York girl witnessed her father fatally shooting her mother before the man turned the gun on himself.
    State police say when troopers arrived at Kylie Ann Turczyn’s home outside Utica Friday afternoon, they found the 23-year-old woman suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. She was pronounced dead soon after at a Utica hospital.
    Troopers say her ex-boyfriend and the father of her daughter, 27-year-old Thomas Anderson of Utica, had entered the home with a rifle and shot her several times before using the gun to commit suicide.
    Their daughter wasn’t injured. Turczyn’s sister and niece were able to get out of the house in the town of Deerfield and weren’t injured.
    Police say Anderson was distraught over the couple’s recent breakup.
