PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities have released the names of a married couple in Peoria who died in a murder-suicide last weekend.
Maricopa County Sheriff’s officials say evidence shows 39-year-old James Donnelly fatally shot his 39-year-old wife Carin Donnelly and then turned the gun on himself.
The Sheriff’s office reported receiving a call about a possible domestic dispute in northwestern Peoria around 4:30 p.m. Sunday.
Deputies arrived to find a dead woman and a gravely injured man inside a home.
They say the man later identified as James Donnelly was taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries.
Sheriff’s officials say the Donnellys had been married for three years.
