Ohio police release details in murder-suicide

LORAIN, Ohio (AP) — Police in northeast Ohio have released more information about an apparent weekend murder-suicide that left three people dead.

Police in Lorain say they believe 31-year-old Shone Whitney entered through a bathroom window to confront his 29-year-old estranged wife, Halyna Whitney, and her 33-year-old boyfriend, William Everett Jr.

Investigators believe Shone Whitney fatally shot the other two before turning the gun on himself sometime early Sunday.

Police said Halyna Whitney’s two children — a 7-year old girl and 1-year-old boy — were in the house at the time of the shootings but weren’t hurt.

The (Lorain) Morning Journal (http://bit.ly/11xItQ3 ) reports that investigators are examining four guns found at the scene.
