DNA says body is Ohio girl, 2


HOUSTON - A murdered 2-year-old girl, called "Baby Grace" by police investigating her death, has been officially identified as a missing Ohio girl.

DNA tests yesterday confirmed the girl's identity as Riley Ann Sawyers, who disappeared in June after her mother moved to Texas from Mentor, Ohio, to marry a man she met online.

Riley's mother, Kimberly Dawn Trenor, 19, and her husband, Royce Clyde Zeigler II, 24, have been arrested in the toddler's death. Ms. Trenor told police she and Mr. Zeigler beat and tortured Riley to death July 24.
