PHOENIX -- Two people were found dead in a west Phoenix home Wednesday evening and their 10-month-old daughter was found alive right next to the bodies.

Police responded to a home near Camelback and 79th Avenue at approximately 6 p.m. A 60-year-old woman told officers that she came home and discovered her 24-year-old daughter, Marilyn Guerra, and Guerra's ex-boyfriend, Dylan Bell, dead inside.

She said the couple's 10-month-old daughter was crying by her mother's side, according to Sgt. Steve Martos with the Phoenix Police Department.

Police said Bell, 24, came into the home and shot Guerra then shot himself.

The child was unharmed and is with her grandparents.

Guerra's father said she had broken up with Bell about five months ago. He said Bell was problematic and had been in trouble with the law.

Police said Bell was angry over custody issues and Guerra's new boyfriend.
