BEAUMONT (AP) — Authorities say the drowning deaths this past month of a man and young girl in Southeast Texas have been ruled a murder-suicide.

The Beaumont Enterprise reports 31-year-old Traveth Quinn took his 3-year-old daughter to a city pool that had closed weeks earlier. A Beaumont municipal worker who was checking the pool discovered the pair Oct. 10 in shallow water. Beaumont police spokeswoman Carol Riley says Quinn had a history of depression.
