The Pueblo County Coroner's Office is expected to perform an autopsy today on 8-year-old Desirea French, whose body was found in her family's mobile home in Pueblo County Sunday night.
The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office tells NewsFirst5 that it appears the child suffered a gunshot wound. Her father, John French, Jr. also suffered a wound to the head. He is expected to survive.
In what Pueblo County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Laurie Kilpatrick called a 'macabre scene,' the pair were discovered by John French, Sr. when he returned home from work.
