The Nebraska State Patrol is investigating an apparent murder-suicide after a two-year-old and her father were found dead in Burwell.

The bodies of 31 year old Christopher Melling and two-year-old Aimee Melling were found on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers broke out a window to enter the home on 624 E. Street to conduct a welfare check.

Concerned neighbors reported no recent activity at the home. A single firearm was discovered at the scene.

Autopsies have been scheduled for later this week in Gibbon.

Garfield County Attorney Dale Crandall tells News 5 that this could be his first homicide case in his 35 years on the job.
