FAIRDEALING, Mo. (AP) — Two people are dead and two others hospitalized after what authorities are calling a murder-suicide in southeast Missouri.
Ripley County Sheriff Ron Barnett says the deaths happened Saturday night in a rural home near Fairdealing.
Barnett says a couple argued when the woman wanted to leave their home, and the woman’s family came to help her move out. He says 23-year-old Colton Turner shot and killed his girlfriend’s father, Dean McColley Sr. He also stabbed his girlfriend’s mother and brother before killing himself.
KFVS reports (http://bit.ly/Vzl6X7 ) one stabbing victim was sent to an area hospital, while the other was flown to Memphis, Tenn., for treatment.
The incident is still under investigation.
