Central Ohio couple dies in murder-suicide

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police in Columbus say a 21-year-old woman and her 24-year-old fiance have died in an apparent murder-suicide.

Police identified them Thursday night as Julia Bunch and Zacharie Wolf. They were found dead after officers responded to their apartment earlier in the day. They believe Wolf shot Bunch and then himself.

Bunch’s sister told the 911 operator that Bunch was 11 weeks pregnant. She was also the mother of a 2-year-old girl.

The sister, Jessica Earles, was staying with the couple and went outside the apartment because they were arguing. That’s when she heard the two gunshots.
