Man Kills Wife and In-Laws, Himself

July 30, 1993

ALLEN, Mich. (AP) _ A man who neighbors said had been kicked out of the house by his wife shot her and his in-laws to death before killing himself.

Terry Hall, 39, killed 34-year-old Diane Hall as she left a store Thursday, then drove down the street to the house where his in-laws were baby-sitting for the Halls’ five children, authorities said.

Hall killed his father-in-law, Dale Gratz, 58, and Gratz’s wife, Mary Lou, 52, authorities said. None of the children were harmed.

Hall walked a half-mile to another house, where he shot himself in the head after being confronted by the sheriff and another officer.

Neighbors said Hall had been harassing his wife since she kicked him out two weeks ago.
