COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Richland County sheriff’s deputies who were asked to check a home after no one picked up a child at a school found what appears to be a murder-suicide.

Deputies say it appears a woman was killed by her estranged husband, who then killed himself.

Officers say no one came to pick up the couple’s six-year-old child from school Wednesday afternoon. Deputies say no one responded when they knocked an apartment door.

Officers who went inside found 34-year-old Stephanie C. Wallace dead from a gunshot wound. The body of 32-year-old Keith Wallace was also there.

Investigators have not determined what sparked the shooting.
