DUNDALK, Md. (AP) - Baltimore County Police have a warrant charging the father of a missing girl in the death of the girl's mother.
    
Police announced Friday that they have obtained a warrant charging Timothy Virts, the girl's father, with first-degree murder after discovering 36-year-old Bobbie Jo Cortez's body at her Dundalk home a day earlier. Their daughter, 11-year-old Caitlyn Virts, was missing along with her father.
    
Police said Cortez had multiple cuts to her upper body. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
    
Police spokeswoman Elise Armacost says Caitlyn's twin sister and Cortez's young son, as well as two adults, were living at the home. She says Timothy Virts had also been staying there for the past several weeks.
    
Armacost said at a news conference Friday that the FBI is assisting local police.
