CHINO (CBS) — Officials are investigating a murder, as well as an attempted suicide, involving a couple in their 70s who had apparently been married for more than 40 years.
Authorities said Bobby Joe Winters, 74, shot his wife, Angela, twice at a relative’s home Sunday night, then kidnapped her, shot her again and left her in Ontario.
A number of family members were reportedly present at the time of the 9:30 p.m. shooting.
The victim was still alive when paramedics arrived but died later at the hospital.
Officials said when they tried to arrest Winters he shot and wounded himself, attempting to take his own life.
Neighbors said they had no idea there were any problems in the Winters family.
