3 killed in apparent murder-suicide in York County

WELLSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a woman shot and killed along with a friend by her estranged husband who then killed himself had moved out but apparently returned to pick up some belongings.

Police in York County said troopers responding to reports of a shooting Friday night in Warrington Township found the bodies of 54-year-old Laurie Kepner of West Manchester Township and 55-year-old Barbara Schrum of Dover.

Both had been shot, and authorities said 60-year-old Martin Kepner was also found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Coroner Pam Gay said her office was told that Laurie Kepner had left the home in December but came back “to get a few things.”

Gay said this is the county’s fourth domestic murder-suicide or attempt in about a month.
