Saturday, June 29, 2013
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police say a 35-year-old man with a history of domestic violence killed his wife and son before fatally shooting himself.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://is.gd/XBQM4I ) reports that the man cut lawns for his landlord. When the man didn't show up for work Saturday, the landlord went to the south St. Louis home that the family recently moved into and found the bodies.
The man's 26-year-old wife and 3-year-old child had been shot multiple times. Police didn't immediately release their names.
Police say the man had been charged in May with hitting his wife with a tire iron.
