This is the Bronx mom and daughter killed in apparent double murder

This is the 10-year-old Bronx girl who was strangled and her mother who was also slain over the weekend, in what police are probing as a possible double murder and attempted suicide.

Young Heaven Ross can be seen smiling sweetly in a pink gown, matching the dress worn by her mother Linda Manigault, in an undated photo obtained by The Post on Sunday.

The 34-year-old mother clutches a bouquet of flowers as the pair pose in front of a backdrop made of large, white paper roses.

The mother and daughter were found dead in their third-floor Belmont apartment near East 181 Street Saturday afternoon.

A 32-year-old man — identified by sources as Ezort Stevens — was found with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, and was fighting for his life in a hospital Sunday, officials said.

According to two neighbors, Stevens — a yellow cab driver since 2016 — was the mother’s boyfriend, but not the father of Heaven or Manigault’s other children, two other daughters aged 15 and 17 and a 13-year-old son.

Neighbor Ana Candelario, 42, said Heaven used to dance at their church and described her as “such an adorable, beautiful, beautiful girl.”

Mom Linda was “so full of life,” Candelario said.

Another neighbor, Haiti Sanchez, 53, described Manigault as a doting parent.

“She was always with her kids,” Sanchez said.
