KILLINGWORTH, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut State Police say a Killingworth man shot and killed his wife before turning the gun on himself.

Police announced Friday the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is ruling the case a murder-suicide. Police found 57-year-old Billy W. Newman and his 48-year-old wife Lauren Beebe unresponsive on Wednesday after being called to a home in Killingworth for a report of a disturbance.

Both were pronounced dead by emergency medical personnel at the scene. The medical examiner’s office determined both died of gunshot wounds. No further details were released.

Court records show the couple had been going through a divorce. Police say two children were at the home at the time of the incident and have been placed with other family members.
