Minnesota dad dies after killing girlfriend, baby in Florida

OCALA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in Florida say a Minnesota man has died two days after killing his girlfriend and young child before shooting himself.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office said Monday morning that 27-year-old Kevin Benjamin Olesen Farias of Waconia, Minnesota, died. A motorist found the family in the middle of a clay road in the Ocala National Forest on Saturday morning.

Officials said 32-year-old Jessica L. Johnson of Holmen, Wisconsin, and the couple's 1-year-old daughter, Gabriela Farias, died at the scene.

Farias was taken to a hospital, where he later died.

Ocala is in north Florida.
