A woman and a 14-year-old girl were found dead inside a Brooklyn apartment on Monday, the authorities said, prompting an investigation into the killings that are the latest to unsettle New York City.
The woman, 37, was found dead in the living room with multiple stab wounds, including on her face, according to a law enforcement official who was not authorized to publicly discuss details of the case. The teenager was found beside the woman, and a dog was found beside them with a bag over its head, the official said.
The killings occurred in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn, according to a spokesman for the New York Police Department.
Last month, the bodies of four family members, including a toddler and a baby, were found inside a locked Upper West Side apartment.
This is a breaking story.
