VALLEY SPRINGS, Calif. >> Authorities have released the name of a young girl who died after being stabbed in her home in rural Northern California.

The county coroner identified the girl as 8-year-old Leila Fowler. Initially she was reported as being 9-years-old, but Coroner Kevin Raggio said Sunday she would have turned 9 in June.

Meanwhile, residents of the tiny community of Valley Springs in Calaveras County are being told to keep their doors locked as authorities continue to search for the little girl's killer.

Sheriff's officials say the girl was found by her brother after he encountered an intruder in the home around noon Saturday.

When the intruder ran away, the boy found his sister stabbed. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital

Valley Springs is about 60 miles southeast of Sacramento.
