Kennedy Gattuso has a new home, at least for the time being.

The 3-year-old daughter of Fargo's Philip Gattuso was orphaned Oct. 26 when her father was killed in a fatal hammer beating that police say was a murder-for-hire arranged by her maternal grandfather.


Kennedy's aunt - Regan Williams, sister of the girl's dead mother and granddaughter of the man accused of arranging for her father to be killed - has had temporary custody of Kennedy since Philip Gattuso died.
