GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Two people are dead after an apparent murder-suicide in Goodyear and Phoenix, authorities said Thursday.
Goodyear police said it appears a woman fatally shot her ex-boyfriend and later took her own life.
Police were called to the Goodyear home of 41-year-old Todd Vermillion on Tuesday after his family did a welfare check and found him dead from a gunshot wound.
After police began investigating, they developed probable cause that Vermillion’s ex-girlfriend was involved.
A SWAT team served a search warrant Wednesday at the Phoenix apartment of 37-year-old Lisa Couty and reported finding her dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Phoenix police are investigating Couty’s death while Goodyear police continue the investigate Vermillion’s death.
