Police: Kentucky husband, wife killed in domestic dispute

July 25, 2019

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say a domestic dispute left two people dead in what may be a murder-suicide.

News outlets reports 54-year-old Donna J. Hollon and 51-year-old Larry W. Hollon were both fatally shot Wednesday.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Bernis Napier says authorities received a call about a domestic dispute. The incident appeared to be a murder-suicide. Larry Hollon was dead at the scene and Donna Hollon was transported to the hospital, where she died from her wounds.

The couple’s daughter, 18-year-old Daisy Hollon, also was hospitalized with apparent minor injuries.

An autopsy to determine official causes of death was scheduled Thursday.

State police also are investigating similar deaths in Bremen. They say Jon Tracy Markwell appears to have shot his wife, Darcy Markwell, on Friday before turning the gun on himself.
