Kansas police ID woman killed in suspected murder-suicide

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Police in Kansas City, Kansas, have identified a woman found dead with her husband in their home in what investigators suspect was a murder-suicide.

Police spokesman Tom Tomasic said Wednesday that a 17-year-old girl returning home Tuesday afternoon found the bodies of her 45-year-old mother, Jennifer Combs, and her stepfather. The man’s name wasn’t released.

Tomasic said both victims had been shot.

Tomasic says the officer retreated before authorities applied for a search warrant to further investigate the scene.
