Lake Havasu City police: 2 die in apparent murder-suicide
LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) — Police in Lake Havasu City have released the names of a husband and wife who apparently died in a murder-suicide.
Officers were dispatched to a home on Aug. 29 to do a welfare check.
Police say a woman had gone to the house to recover property and had not returned home.
They say the bodies of a man and woman were found inside the house, both with gunshot wounds.
The police department’s criminal investigations unit determined 42-year-old Keri Malkiewicz was in the process of separating from her 53-year-old husband.
Police say it appears Daniel Malkiewicz apparently shot his wife with a handgun before using it to take his own life.
