Authorities confirm Missouri deaths were murder-suicide
WILLARD (AP) - A police chief says the deaths of a man and woman in the southwest Missouri town of Willard were a murder-suicide.
Willard Police Chief Tom McClain said Wednesday investigators determined that 54-year-old Edward Rollins shot his wife, 43-year-old Sherry Rollins, three times before shooting himself. Their bodies were found at their home Feb. 12.
The Springfield News-Leader reports police recovered a pistol, ammunition and more than 200 prescription pills at the couple's home.
McClain says authorities responded to the home at least six times since 2000 for domestic disturbances and similar calls.
