California Couple Held For Murder Of 3 Yr Old Daughter [Photo]

I dont know about you, but we’re sick of these innocent children losing their lives!(smh)

A young mother and her boyfriend were arrested Sunday about 24 hours after police found the woman’s 3-year-old daughter sexually assaulted and beaten to death in their Napa, Calif., home, police say.
Sara Krueger, 23, and Ryan Scott Warner, 26, were found around 11 a.m. near a Bay Area Rapid Transit train station in El Cerrito del Norte about 30 miles south of their Napa home.

Little Kayleigh Slusher, 3, was found sexually abused and beaten to death around 1 p.m. Saturday. The tiny blond-haired tot would have been 4 in May, police said.

The cold-hearted mother and her boyfriend were seen leaving their home with luggage around 10 a.m. Saturday.Both face charges of homicide and murder with special circumstances. There could be a sexual assault charge, as well.

An autopsy was set for Monday. The girl’s biological father, an inmate at San Quentin State Prison, has been told of the girl’s death, KTVU-TV reported. The family’s Napa apartment was the scene of a vigil for little Kayleigh on Sunday. Photos show a pink and white Hello Kitty bicycle, with training wheels attached, sitting on the porch.

About 50 people gathered with candles to remember the little girl, who is shown smiling in photos on her mother’s Facebook page.Krueger describes herself on social media as a “Full Time Mommy! :)” and has captioned several photos of Kayleigh as her “beautiful little girl.”

The boyfriend, Warner, “moved in about 10 months ago, and it all went downhill from there,” the building’s property manager, Elizabeth Chechourka told KTVU-TV.

Cops had responded multiple times, she said, on noise violations and reports from neighbors that the girl had been abused.

Police were reportedly at the home just a week before the girl was killed.
