Dad kills six-month-old baby and toddler sister before leaving bodies in garden

A dad has been accused of killing his six-month-old baby and her sister, before turning a gun on himself.

The bodies of Amyah Engleman, two, and Caraline Engleman, six months, were found in the garden of a home in Texas.

Kyle Brandon Grieb is suspected of killing the girls before shooting himself – his body was also found nearby.

The 30-year-old had spent the night at the girls' home, according to their mum, Halie Engleman.

She claims he had told her he was going to take the girls.

Upon waking up the next morning, Halie could not find the girls and asked Grieb where they were.

He pointed to the bathroom, however they were not there, according to Hays Free Press.

As the mum went out to search for the two kids, Grieb was gone.

Halie then called the police who arrived at around 10:10am – while speaking to them, a family member was allegedly heard saying "there’s a body out there.”

The bodies of the girls were found under the tarp, along with Grieb with "obvious gunshot wounds to the head.”
