December 24, 2018

PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities say a Phoenix man shot his wife to death and then killed himself.

Phoenix police say officers were doing a welfare check at a home Sunday around 7:15 p.m. and forced their way inside after nobody came to the door.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson says they found 36-year-old Jocelyn Casdorph and 47-year-old Victor Issa dead.

Thompson says a preliminary investigation indicates Issa shot Casdorph and then himself.

Police initially said the couple was divorced but later said they were married.

The investigation remains ongoing.
