CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine (AP) — The mother and stepfather of a 10-year-old Maine girl who was found dead at a condo complex have been charged with murder.

State police say 33-year-old Sharon Carrillo and 51-year-old Julio Carrillo were arrested Monday at state police offices in Bangor, where they had been interviewed by detectives.

The girl, Marrissa Kennedy, was found dead Sunday at the condo complex in Stockton Springs. The family had been staying at a condo owned by the mother’s parents.
