Coroner say murder-suicide killed Seneca couple

Posted: Updated:

SENECA, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a Seneca man shot his girlfriend in the chest and neck before turning the gun on himself outside their Seneca home.

Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis says an autopsy confirmed the 1 a.m. Saturday shooting happened the way deputies suspected.

Addis says 58-year-old Gwendolyn Hiott bled to death after being shot and 50-year-old husband James Wesley Foxx died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Investigators say a handgun was found near Foxx's body.

Someone passing by the home called 911 after seeing two bodies in the yard after sunrise Saturday.
