PITTSBURGH (AP) – State police say a Pennsylvania woman allegedly kidnapped by her husband has been found dead in a barn, while he’s been hospitalized with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Troopers from the Washington, Pennsylvania barracks say 47-year-old Kevin Ewing abducted 48-year-old Tierne (TEER’-nee) Ewing at gunpoint from a residence in West Finley Township about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Her body was found Tuesday night in the same township several miles away and police say she died “of an apparent gunshot wound.” The Washington County coroner hasn’t formally ruled on her death. The same news release says Kevin Ewing was also found there with a gunshot wound.
Kevin Ewing was free on bond awaiting trial on charges he kidnapped, beat and held the victim captive for nearly two weeks in June and July.
