Police: Ohio man kills ex-wife then himself


ALLIANCE, Ohio  — Police in northeastern Ohio say a man fatally shot his 28-year-old ex-wife before turning the gun on himself in a public parking lot.

Alliance police said the 31-year-old man called 911 Sunday night and reported killing his ex-wife. The man shot himself as police arrived at the scene, a parking lot near Alliance Community Hospital. He died later.

Police said he may have shot his ex-wife elsewhere and transported her body, which was wrapped in blankets and left next to a trash container in the hospital parking lot.

The couple had recently divorced. Their names haven’t been released.
