SHINGLETOWN, Calif. – Sheriff’s officials say a man killed his wife and 4-year-old and 8-year-old daughters in rural Northern California.

Shasta County Sheriff’s officials released the victims’ identities and relationship to the suspect on Wednesday, a day after the killings six miles west of Shingletown.
