MOOREFIELD, W.Va. (AP) - Police say the boyfriend of a slain West Virginia teacher shot and wounded himself in Virginia.

Moorefield Police Chief Steven Reckart tells multiple media outlets that the body of 45-year-old Moorefield Middle School teacher Joy Coby was found Wednesday morning near her home in Moorefield. Police went to check on Coby after she failed to appear for work.

Police began searching for Coby’s boyfriend, 47-year-old Jared D. Connors, who lived with her. He was tracked by his cell phone to near Staunton, Virginia.

Police say Connors shot himself inside Coby’s car in the parking lot of a Walmart in Staunton as a Virginia State Police trooper approached him.

Reckart says Coby was in critical condition at the University of Virginia Medical Center.
