From the Daily News:

The naked bodies of a “loving” mother and her 8-year-old daughter were found in a bathtub in their Brooklyn home early Sunday, police and friends said.
Shakeema Elliott, 29, and Kaliya Williams were already dead by the time paramedics arrived at their Batchelder St. home at 4:20 a.m., police said.
Elliott and Kaliya – whom friends lovingly called “Le Le” – were always together, friends recalled yesterday.
“She was a loving mother,” said Tobias Stuart, 34. “It was just her and her daughter all the time.”
Cops were called to the Nostrand Houses in Sheepshead Bay to look into a reported burglary. They found Elliott’s fourth-floor home ajar, and then made the chilling discovery in her bathroom.
“There was some water in the bathtub and some pills were around,” a police source said.
There were no obvious signs of trauma, and no suspects were being interviewed last night, police said.
