FREEPORT, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a man fatally shot a woman and then killed himself at a residence in Winneshiek (WIH’-neh-shihk) County.

The bodies were discovered Sunday evening by an officer who was dispatched to the home in the Freeport area after people reported hearing gunshots.

The Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Thursday that investigators have determined that 55-year-old Craig Freilinger shot 41-year-old Sarah Szabo several times and then turned the gun on himself. Authorities have said the couple recently separated.

The shootings were characterized a homicide-suicide.
