Death of Springfield man and woman possible murder-suicide
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Springfield police are investigating the deaths of a man and woman as a possible murder-suicide.
Police say in a news release a caller reported Saturday afternoon that a man had shot a woman inside a Springfield apartment.
When officers arrived, the man refused to talk to them or to leave the apartment.
After negotiations failed, officers entered the apartment and found the bodies of a man and woman with apparent gunshot wounds.
Police identified them as 52-year-old Jacqueline Steinert and 53-year-old Matthew Stephens, both of Springfield.
Police say investigators don’t believe there is a suspect at large or that the public is in any danger.
