4-year old New York girl witnesses murder/suicide of mother by father

Kylie Ann Turczyn, 23, and Thomas Anderson, 27, had just broken up.  Distraught about the breakup, Anderson entered his ex-girlfriend's Deerfield, New York home with a rifle and shot her multiple times, killing her.  He then turned the gun on himself and killed himself.

Their 4-year old daughter witnessed the entire event.  Luckily, she was uninjured.

From an article:

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 wound. 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 break-up.
