JEFFERSON CITY - A Cole County man fatally shoots his ex-wife and later himself after holing up in his apartment and refusing to surrender to police. According to Jefferson City Police, 43-year-old James Ahart was accused of first-degree homicide after 46-year-old Cynthia Ahart was shot to death last night. Ahart then left the scene and headed to his apartment. He refused to come out, so county, city and state law enforcement surrounded the place to try and arrest him. Early this morning, police tried tear gas and pepper spray, but got no response. They eventually entered the apartment, and found the man dead, apparently from shooting himself. More details are expected later in the day.
