NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a Northern California woman and her boyfriend are scheduled to appear before a judge in the death of her 3-year-old daughter.

The Napa County district attorney's office says Sara Krueger and Ryan Scott Warner are due to make their first appearance in a Napa County courtroom Tuesday afternoon.

The 23-year-old Krueger and the 26-year-old Warner were arrested Sunday in El Cerrito after police found Krueger's daughter in her apartment on Saturday.

Police say the child, whose name has not been released, showed signs of having been sexually assaulted and blunt force trauma.

The girl's relatives and neighbors gathered Sunday night for a vigil outside the apartment where her body was discovered.

Lt. Debbie Peecook says an autopsy on the girl is being conducted on Monday.
