The newsroom staff at the Daily News choose their picks for the top news stories of 2015.

The brutal slaying of a 7-year-old Scottsville girl and the subsequent arrest in connection with her death tops the Daily News Top 10 news stories of 2015.

The Scottsville story received almost twice as many votes as the No. 2 local story selected by the Daily News staff.

The story judged No. 2 was the complicated financial situation that surrounded the commercial garage wrap next to Bowling Green Ballpark in the Tax Increment Financing district. The results of a state audit of the wrap project were released Tuesday.
