STAMFORD - ? Police believe a Stamford woman shot her daughter to death before committing suicide around 11 p.m. Sunday.

Police say they found a handgun in a 39 Glenbrook Road apartment, where they believe Angela Labbadia, 62, killed her 41-year-old daughter Christina Labbadia then turned the gun on herself.

Officers say Christina Labbadia was somewhat physically and mentally handicapped. Her mother, they say, suffered from depression and grappled with health and financial problems. They believe all this led to the tragedy.

Police say autopsies are scheduled for Tuesday.
