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.


This story has been corrected to say that the suspect and victim were married after Phoenix police initially reported they were divorced.
