The body of a 10-year-old girl was found in a trash can at a Gwinnett County apartment complex, county police said.

Homicide detectives and a medical examiner are on the scene at the Landmark at Coventry Pointe Apartments.

Police said a man called 911 shortly before 4 a.m. and said he wanted to commit suicide.

He told dispatchers that there was a dead body with him and that his daughter drank “some type of chemical” and had died.

When officers arrived, they found a man standing in a breezeway of the apartment complex. He pointed to a trash can in a recreation area, where officers found a badly burned child’s body.

The investigation continues.

A father and stepmother have been charged with murder in Gwinnett County after the body of a 10-year-old girl was found in a trashcan, police said Saturday.
