An elderly man allegedly shoots his wife - then himself in Lawrence County, Ohio over the holiday weekend.
Sheriff Jeff Lawless says it happened at a home in the 4300 block of County Road 15 in the South Point area, just before 6pm Sunday evening. That's where deputies found the bodies of 76-year old Lola J. Holley and 84 year old Dalton Holley.
Investigators say a small caliber revolver was still in Mr. Holley's hand when they arrived. A daughter of the couple who lived with them, told deputies that they had been arguing during the day.
