The New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator has released autopsy reports for the five family members killed in their rural home outside Albuquerque in January.

2-year-old Angelina Griego was shot once in the back, chest and forehead according to the reports. The report says Griego's brothers, 5-year-old Jael and 9-year-old Zephaniah, were both shot once in head, while their mother, Sara, was shot twice in the face while she slept.

Police say Greg Griego, a spiritual leader known for his work with firefighters, was shot once in the back and chest and twice in his head.

His son, Nehemiah Griego, was indicted in February on murder and child abuse charges in the case.

Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston has said the teen told detectives he was angry with his mother and had been having homicidal and suicidal thoughts.
